What is Title IX, and what does it have to do with you? Title IX is a civil rights law passed in 1972 which states:
“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.”
So what does this mean? It means that if you are enrolled in or work for an educational institution that receives federal funds, you cannot be discriminated against on the basis of sex. Sexual harassment is a form of sex-based discrimination under Title IX because it can deprive an individual of equal access to an institution’s programs and activities. Sexual Harassment in any form is expressly prohibited by Ensign College. To learn more about what constitutes sexual harassment, you can view Ensign College’s Sexual Harassment Policy here .
Ensign College will not tolerate sex-based discrimination perpetrated by or against any students, staff, or visitors to its campus. The college will investigate and address Title IX incidents in accordance with law and college policy. The college also takes measures to promote and maintain a safe and respectful learning environment.
