Title IX Policy and Procedure
Title IX Policy
The Title IX Policy and Procedure has been updated for 2020 to meet the Department of Education’s Title IX Regulations. The Title IX Policy and Procedure can be found on our title IX page, or a PDF of the Policy can be downloaded (PDF, 30 pages).
At any point in the Title IX process, regardless of whether a Formal Complaint has been filed or not, both parties (Complainant and Respondent) have rights. Students, Faculty and Staff participating in any resolution process or complaint process have the right to:
- A full, fair and impartial proceeding
- Information about the potential policy violation(s) in question
- Supply information on potential witnesses
- Supply written statements
- The ability to have an advisor of choice at all meetings and proceedings
- The ability to review all evidence and documents that will be used to make a determination
- The respondent will be presumed not responsible until the resolution of a disciplinary process
