Employee Title IX Policy - Scope

II. Scope

This Policy applies to conduct committed by a University Employee when the prohibited conduct occurs in the University’s education program or activity.

The University’s Education Program or Activity includes all of the University’s operations, including: 1) locations, events, or circumstances over which the University exercises substantial control over both the Respondent and the context in which conduct occurs; and 2) any building owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by the University.  The Title IX regulations, which direct the University’s response to reports of Title IX Sexual Harassment, do not draw a line between on-campus, off-campus, or online conduct, provided the conduct occurred in an Education Program or Activity in the United States.  Examples include University-sponsored, University-funded or University-supported study off campus, research, internship, mentorship, summer session, conferences, meetings, social events, or other affiliated programs or premises.

Formal Complaints against University Students or Student Organizations, and the rights of Student Complainants, are addressed under the University’s Sexual Misconduct and Interpersonal Violence Policy in the Student Handbook.  Other University policies (including but not limited to the Protected Class Harassment Policy, Minors on Campus Policy, and Consensual Relations Policy) address areas of University concern outside the Title IX framework.
