Title IX and Campus Sexual Violence Act Resources

BCOM is committed to maintaining and fostering a learning environment free from discrimination based on sex in accordance with Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities that are federally funded.  Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and will not be tolerated.  Sexual misconduct includes sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, stalking, domestic violence and/or dating violence.

The principles of Title IX is that an institution may not exclude, separate, deny benefits of any kind to, or otherwise treat differently an person on the basis of sex.  It protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and all other persons from all forms of sex discrimination.  The commitment to non-discrimination applies to both employment in and admission to such program and activities.  Title IX also applies to issues of program equity such as in student organizations.
