About Sexual Misconduct and Harassment

What is Title IX?

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." -Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972

As a Catholic university sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, Saint Xavier affirms the basic human dignity of all persons, including the right to be free from harassment and discrimination on the basis of sex or gender. In support of this fundamental belief, and in accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the University prohibits discrimination in all educational programs and activities on the basis of sex or gender.

Programs and activities under Title IX include academic programs, admissions, athletics, financial aid, housing, career services, counseling and health services, student activities and employment.

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by Saint Xavier University policy.

Any member of the campus community, guest, or visitor who acts to deny, deprive, or limit the educational, employment, residential, or social access, opportunities and/or benefits of any member of the Saint Xavier University community on the basis of sex is in violation of the Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Policy.
