Title IX Compliance at Rollins

Rollins College is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, faculty, and staff can work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination.  Specifically, every member of the College community should be aware that Rollins is strongly opposed to discrimination, including sexual harassment, and that such behavior is prohibited by College policy (http://www.rollins.edu/hr/policies/docs/general-policies/030000.pdf). It is the intention of the College to take whatever action may be necessary to prevent, correct, and, if necessary, discipline for behavior which violates this policy.

 

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is federal law which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.  Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault. (http://www.rollins.edu/hr/policies/docs/general-policies/050000.pdf)

 

While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than Athletics and applies to all programs at Rollins. While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at Rollins, listed below are the staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance.

 

The Office of Human Resources is charged with monitoring the College’s compliance with federal, state and institutional polices that promote a non-discriminatory and harassment-free environment. This includes discrimination based on sex, covered under Title IX. The Assistant Vice President for HR and Risk Management is the designated Title IX Coordinator.
