What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) and its implementing regulations prohibit sex discrimination in educational programs and activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. This prohibition encompasses discrimination based on a student’s gender identity, including discrimination based on a student’s transgender status.
Elizabethtown College is committed to providing a learning, working, and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect in an environment free of sex discrimination and sexual misconduct.
Sex discrimination violates an individual's fundamental rights and personal dignity. Sex discrimination includes all forms of sexual and gender-based harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual violence, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking by students, employees or third parties against employees, students, or third parties.
Elizabethtown College takes seriously violations of Title IX policy and will investigate allegations of Title IX violations to the fullest extent possible. Any person found in violation of the policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including termination if they are an employee, and/or expulsion if they are a student.
