Title IX

Title IX allows students, faculty, staff and visitors on-campus to learn, work, and live in an environment free from discrimination based on sex and gender, and behaviors like sexual harassment, stalking, and non-consensual interactions.

What does Title IX mean for me?

If you are an Evergreen community member, Title IX creates a process for you to report harassment or discriminatory behaviors related to sex and/or gender, and seek resolution options if you want to.

If you work for the college, it means you are a Responsible Employee and must report any instances of potential sexual harassment or discrimination that you become aware of.

Below are some examples of potential violations:

  • Gender Discrimination: discriminatory conduct based on a person's gender, gender expression, perceived gender, or gender stereotypes
  • Sexual Harassment: discrimination based on the person’s sex – characterized by unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
  • Sexual Assault: actual or attempted sexual contact with another person without that person’s consent.
  • Stalking: engaging in conduct directed at another individual that would cause a reasonable person to fear for their safety or the safety of others, or to feel intimidated or harassed.
  • Dating/Domestic Violence: physical or sexual abuse or harm, or the threat of physical or sexual abuse including emotional abuse and psychological abuse.
  • Sexual Exploitation: taking non-consensual or abusive sexual advantage of an individual for the advantage or benefit or anyone other than the person being exploited.

Are you the victim of a Title IX violation or a Responsible Employee aware of a potential violation?
