Title IX: Sexual Assault

Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on gender in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. Athletic programs are not the only academic realm governed by Title IX. Title IX applies to all departments, programs and activities, on and off of campus, available to students at Manhattanville College in addition to employment. Manhattanville College prohibits and will not tolerate sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking and dating violence upon any member of the community.

"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

Each institution must designate at least one employee to evaluate current policy practices, coordinate college wide educational programming and training to ensure an institution's compliance with Title IX, coordinate efforts to effectively and efficiently respond to complaints of sex discrimination, including complaints of sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, stalking and dating violence and ensure as much as possible that every student has an equal education.
