What is Title IX?

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

What this means for our community:

Members of the Muskingum University community, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of gender and sex-based discrimination. Examples of such discrimination can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Muskingum University believes in a zero tolerance policy for gender-based misconduct. When an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, and a student is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions will be used to reasonably ensure that such actions are never repeated. This policy has been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide a course of action for those individuals whose rights have been violated. This policy is intended to define community expectations and to establish a process for determining when those expectations have been violated. Use of alcohol or other drugs is not a defense for any behavior that violates this policy. The sexual orientation and/or gender identity of individuals engaging in sexual activity is not relevant to allegations under this policy.
