Title IX Policy-Policy Against Sexual Misconduct

Title IX Exemption 

Policy Against Sexual Misconduct

William Jessup University prohibits discrimination and harassment based on race, color, gender, national origin or ancestry, age, disability/medical condition, pregnancy, familial status, or veteran status. WJU is committed to providing a work and learning environment where all persons who participate in University programs and activities can work and learn together in an atmosphere free of harassment, disrespectful, or other unprofessional conduct.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of 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 all students, faculty, and staff from unlawful sexual harassment. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, unwelcomed sexual advances; or sexual violence. The Campus Sexual Violence Act amends the Cleary Act and adds protection for domestic violence, dating violence, sexual violence and stalking.
