Title IX is part of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972, which is a comprehensive federal law protecting individuals from discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.
Gettysburg College prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (i.e., which includes but is not limited to the prohibition of sexual misconduct and relationship violence, including sexual assault and harassment) in all of its educational programs and activities.
In accordance with obligations under the United States Department of Education’s Final Title IX Rule of May 19, 2020, all training materials used to train Title IX Coordinator, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process are available here.
Starting in the Fall of 2020, the College made the commitment to increase transparency surrounding the reports received by the Office of Sexual Respect and Title IX. This annual disclosure of data does not correspond with the College’s Annual Security Report required under the federal Clery Act because the definitions and geographic jurisdiction used by the Title IX Office differ than what is required by the Clery Act.
If you have feedback about the Title IX office and/or process, please use this form to provide feedback. Your feedback will be received by the Director of Title IX and Sexual Respect and the Vice President for College Life.
