Title IX Compliance
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sexual orientation in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. Everglades University not only complies with the letter of Title IX’s requirements but also endorses the law’s intent and spirit. The University is committed to compliance in all areas addressed by Title IX, including access to higher education, career education, math and science, standardized testing, athletics, education for pregnant and parenting students, learning environment, and technology, as well as sexual harassment.
All University students are responsible to make certain that sexual discrimination, sexual violence or sexual harassment does not occur. If you feel that you have experienced or witnessed sexual harassment or sexual violence, you should notify either the Title IX Coordinator or Title IX Responsible Employees designated below. Everglades University forbids retaliation against anyone for reporting harassment, assisting in making a harassment complaint, or cooperating in a harassment investigation; it is also a violation of Federal law. Additional details on this policy can be found at the following under the heading “Title IX Resources”. A copy of the primary prevention and awareness program is also available at the above link under the heading “Primary Prevention & Awareness Program”.
