Title IX

Our Commitment

Geneva College is committed to providing a learning, living, and working environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect free from discrimination on the basis of sex. This includes all forms of sexual misconduct—which is contrary to the standards of the college community, as it violates an individual’s dignity as a person made in the image of God. We consider sexual misconduct, in all its forms, to be a serious offense and it will not be tolerated. We are dedicated to educating our students, faculty, and staff regarding sexual misconduct and to preventing such occurrences in our community.

The Law

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. The law forbids sex discrimination in all college programs, services, employement, recruitment, and selection. Title IX violations include discrimination on the basis of sex and include sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual exploitation, sexual misconduct, interpersonal violence, and stalking.

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the U.S. Department of Education is responsible for enforcing Title IX.
