Title IX

Elizabethtown College and the School of Continuing & Professional Studies (SCPS) is committed to providing a learning and working environment that promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect in an environment free of sex discrimination and sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence. Title IX of the Educational Amendment Act of 1972 states that: 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 assistance. Sex discrimination violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity. Students, employees and college visitors are encouraged to contact the Title IX Coordinator with questions or comments about this Policy:
