Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
“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.”
Title IX protects individuals from sex and gender discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Scripps seeks to maintain an environment in which individuals can live, learn, and work free from these forms of discrimination. The College regards such behavior as inimical to its educational purposes and to the respect for individuals that it holds to be essential in all aspects of its institutional life. Members of the Scripps community – individuals permanently or temporarily employed by, studying at, or officially connected with the College – should know that the College does not tolerate discrimination and harassment.
In furtherance of these principles and in compliance with regulations recently issued by the United States Department of Education under Title IX, the College, along with five of the other Claremont Colleges, adopted The Claremont Colleges Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy (“TCC Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy”). “Sexual Harassment,” as defined by the new regulations, are covered by the TCC Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy.
Complaints of discrimination or harassment that are not governed by the TCC Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy are subject to investigation and resolution under policies and procedures of the Respondent’s college. Accordingly, complaints of discrimination and harassment in which a Scripps student is named as a Respondent are governed by the policies and procedures set forth in the Scripps College Discrimination and Harassment Policies and Grievance Procedures 2021-22 (the “Scripps Policy”).
