Title IX General Policy Statement - 2C9 & 3C8

It is the policy of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to prohibit discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation including gender identity, marital status, civil union status, age, physical or mental disability, military status, or unfavorable discharge from military service in regard to the administration of educational programs, admission of students, employment actions, athletics or other sponsored activities.

SIUE complies with the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. To ensure compliance with Title IX, the University has designated the Office of Equal Opportunity, Access and Title IX Coordination (EOA) as the contact office responsible for developing, adopting and making this policy available to the University community. EOA will also coordinate Title IX compliance requirements with the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and other University departments, as appropriate.

Any individual who believes he/she has been discriminated against or harassed because of their gender, who has been subjected to sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, or relationship violence in violation of University policy, or who has witnessed such activity against another, may file a complaint or obtain information and assistance from EOA.
