of the Education Amendments of 1972
20 U.S.C.A. § 1681
“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.”
Members of the Muskingum University community, including undergraduate students, graduate students, commuters, faculty, employees, vendors, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of gender-based and sex discrimination. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
The University’s Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct Policy has been developed to reaffirm these principles, to provide a course of action for those individuals whose rights have been violated, and to provide a fair and equitable process for resolution of reports. The Policy applies to all members of the University community, regardless of an individual’s sex, gender identity, gender expression, and/or sexual orientation.
