WHAT IS TITLE IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination in any federally funded education programs or activities. Sexual and gender-based harassment, including sexual violence, is a form of discrimination covered by Title IX. This applies to all members of the College community.
The College will not tolerate any type of harassment, sexual harassment, sexual violence, intimate partner violence, or stalking and is committed in policies and practices to eliminate prohibited conduct, prevent recurrence, and address the effects. Specific policies, procedures, and practices are documented in Student, Faculty, and Staff publications. Resources are also available on the College website.
TITILE IX COORDINATORS
The Coordinators are responsible for ensuring West Virginia Wesleyan College’s compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 which prohibits sex discrimination in education programs and activities supported by federal financial assistance. All reports and complaints raising Title IX issues must include notification to the Coordinators. The Coordinators are responsible for monitoring outcomes, identifying and addressing any patterns, and assess the effects on the campus climate. The Title IX Coordinators do not determine outcomes or take an active role in response to complaints. However, they are given the authority to review policies and procedures, enrollment information, participation in athletics, and implementation of disciplinary procedures. When needed, Coordinators may also proactively address issues related to possible sex discrimination.
