Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that 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.” Bellin College is only responsible for responding to conduct that occurs within its education program or activity. This policy does not apply to off-campus, private settings, which are not an education program or activity of Bellin College. The policy and grievance procedures do not apply to college community members outside of the United States.

Bellin College’s policies and procedures are intended to afford a prompt response to reports of sexual misconduct, to maintain confidentiality and fairness consistent with applicable legal requirements, and to impose appropriate sanctions on violators of College policy. Bellin College promptly and thoroughly investigates and resolves complaints alleging sexual harassment, including sexual violence, and/or sexual discrimination. Bellin College offers resources and support to all College community members experiencing concerns. We encourage you to make us aware of these concerns so that we can offer support and resources to you and/or those involved.
