Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all areas of education programs and activities.

Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence and sexual assault, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Fletcher is committed to ensuring all students feel safe and have the opportunity to benefit fully from education programs and activities.

Fletcher has adopted policies and procedures to be in compliance with the federal and state requirements related to the Title IX Act, the VAWA Act and the SaVE Act.

If the college is notified of sexual harassment or violence, we will:

  • Take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate the incident
  • Take prompt action to end the harassment and resolve the situation
  • Take appropriate steps to prevent recurrence of future incidents

The Title IX coordinator has a responsibility to coordinate efforts to comply with its obligations under Title IX and the Title IX regulations. These responsibilities include coordinating any investigations of complaints received regarding sexual harassment, sexual assault or discrimination of any kind.
