Title IX Sexual Misconduct Resources

Miller Hall at night

The University of La Verne is a learning community emphasizing mutual respect for all members and guests while valuing the dignity and worth that each brings to the community. Each community participant has a right to be free from discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct in the learning environment and work setting. Therefore, these and other conduct that diminishes dignity and worth of members of and guests to the University community, regardless of race, color, religion, age, disability, gender, sexual orientation, or veteran status, is prohibited. Such conduct by students, staff, faculty, administrators, trustees, volunteers, visitors, contractors, and vendors is disruptive to the educational environment and work setting. Any complaint by a member or guest of the University community will be investigated and addressed.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 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.

The Title IX Manager is the designated university official with primary responsibility for coordinating the university’s compliance with Title IX. This includes providing leadership for Title IX activities; providing consultation, education and training; and helping to ensure the University responds appropriately, effectively, and equitably to Title IX issues.

All employees, including faculty, staff, and student workers (including Residence Hall Assistants, coaches and assistant coaches) who have a responsibility for student welfare are required to share with the Title IX Coordinator or any of the Deputy Title IX Coordinators any report of sexual misconduct they receive or of which they become aware.
