Sexual Misconduct, Harassment and Sex Discrimination (Title IX)

Body: 
Sexual Misconduct, Harassment and Sex Discrimination (Title IX) Delaware State University is committed to protecting the rights of its faculty, staff and students to ensure that policies and procedures are implemented in complete fairness and within the full scope of the law. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX 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 financial assistance. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) has investigated and worked with recipients to resolve many kinds of civil rights problems, including the following: Acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault or sexual discrimination The provision of less than a fair share of funds for athletic scholarships to females; Inequitable pay for female teachers holding similar teaching positions to those held by male counterparts; and Discrimination against female students on the basis of pregnancy Confientiality Conversations with coordinators are kept as confidential as possible, but information about incidents of sexual misconduct must be shared with relevant administrators if the University needs to take action for reasons of community safety. In all cases, the wishes of the person initiating the conversation are given full consideration. If you wish additional information about Title IX, or a copy of the regulations which detail the requirements of Title IX, write or phone the OCR enforcement office which serves your state or territory, or contact the DSU Title IX Coordinator.

Reporting Complaints of Sexual Conduct

Body: 
Reporting Procedures for Complaints of Sexual Misconduct/Relationship Abuse/Stalking The Delaware State University complaint procedure provides for a thorough, immediate, and objective investigation of all claims of sexual misconduct/relationship abuse/stalking. The University encourages all those who have experienced any form of sexual misconduct to report the incident promptly; to seek out all available campus and community resources, and pursue University conduct action and/or legal proceedings against the offender. Those who have experienced sexual misconduct/relationship abuse/stalking should know that all University employees (faculty, staff, resident assistants, etc.) must report known incidents to campus police for documentation purposes. Personally identifiable information is not released to third parties without permission. Certain licensed professionals and members of the clergy are excluded from this requirement. Those who wish to discuss a matter in complete confidence should notify only those licensed professionals in Heath Services, Counseling and Psychological Services. Refer to the table below which outlines reporting options/resources/options for action. Primary Reporting Offices for Students   Information and Support Informal Remedies Formal Resolution Counseling Services Counseling and Psychological *     * Health Services *       Campus Police * * *   Dean of Students * * *   Title IX Coordinator * * *      

When to Contact Title IX Coordinator

Body: 
When to contact a Title IX coordinator Any student, faculty or staff member, or applicant for admission or education who has concerns about sex discrimination or sexual misconduct is encouraged to seek the assistance of a Title IX coordinator. Contact a coordinator if you: Wish to understand your options if you think you may have encountered sex discrimination or sexual misconduct; Learn of a situation that you feel may warrant a University investigation; Need help on how to handle a situation by which you are indirectly affected; Seek guidance on possible informal remedies or administrative measures to de-escalate or alleviate a difficult situation; Have questions about DSU’s policies and procedures. Coordinators can also facilitate a formal or informal complaint through the University’s Title IX Coordinator or a police report with the DSU Police Department.   Athletes All things being equal The goal of Title IX is equal participation opportunities for both genders. With that in mind, the law requires male and female student-athletes at a particular school to receive financial aid proportional to the school’s participation opportunities. Although Title IX does not require equal dollars to be spent on men’s and women’s sports, it does require equal treatment for: Equipment and supplies Scheduling of games and practice times Travel and daily allowance/per diem Access to tutoring Coaching Locker rooms and practice and competitive facilities Medical and training facilities and services Housing and dining facilities and services Publicity and promotions Support services Recruitment of student-athletes
