Title IX Information
As an institution of higher education, St. John’s College is committed to providing programs, activities, and an educational environment that is free from sex-based discrimination. As a leader in liberal arts education, the College highly values the environment that results when students, faculty, and staff from different backgrounds come together to discuss the ideas and ideals that are the cornerstone of a St. John’s education.
The Sexual Misconduct Policy, Anti-Harassment and Anti-Discrimination Policy, and Sexual Intimacies Policy were designed to further the College’s goal of equity and inclusion and identifies resources that are available to students, faculty, and staff; defines the conduct that is prohibited under these Policies; and outlines the process by which the College will respond to reports of alleged policy violations.
St. John’s College strives to be a community in which all members readily and safely report acts of Sexual Misconduct as defined in this Policy; it is our goal to remove all barriers to reporting.
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits all forms of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct and harassment, in federally funded education programs. Title IX provides 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.
In accordance with Title IX, St. John’s College has established the following policies:
All members of the College community are encouraged to review these policies and to be familiar with the definitions of prohibited conduct, reporting options, and investigation and adjudication process. Any questions should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator on the appropriate campus.
Title IX coordinators are responsible for promoting an environment on campus that is free of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, not just among students, but among all members of the campus community and for addressing and remedying such conduct should it occur.
Title IX Coordinators
Title IX Coordinators and Deputy Title IX Coordinators have been trained to receive and respond to alleged violations of this policy and Reporting Parties are encouraged to seek out these resources when making reports.
