TITLE IX AT FULLER
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination based on gender in educational programs that receive federal financial assistance. Programs and activities that may be included are admissions, recruitment, financial aid, academic programs, athletics, housing, and employment. Title IX also protects men and women from unlawful sexual harassment in school programs and activities. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual violence, such as rape, and sexual exploitation.
Sexual misconduct can be committed by men or women and it can occur between people of the same or different sex. The seminary considers sexual misconduct in any form to be a serious violation of the Christlike conduct expected from all members of its community. The seminary’s Policy Against Sexual Misconduct applies to any on-campus conduct and any off-campus conduct that affects the learning experience of students or the campus climate.
