Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. To ensure compliance with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, Salem College has developed internal policies that prohibit discrimination and sexual harassment on the basis of sex, such as sexual misconduct and sexual violence.

Salem College reaffirms its belief that its educational philosophy, goals, and the quest for knowledge can only flourish in an atmosphere free from sexual harassment. Salem College opposes any and all forms of sexual harassment and will continually take steps necessary for the prevention of such behavior.
