Title IX at Scripps College

As a women’s college, Scripps is acutely aware of the issue of sexual misconduct and sexual violence at colleges and universities. The College is committed to providing effective education, support, and investigative policies and procedures to Scripps students and other community members in order to respond to and remedy instances of sexual misconduct or other harassing behavior.

Combating Sexual Violence

Scripps College seeks to maintain an environment in which individuals can live, learn and work free from discrimination and harassment, including sexual violence, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. The College regards such behavior as inimical to its educational purposes and to the respect for individuals that it holds to be essential in all aspects of its institutional life.

Members of the Scripps community, defined as all individuals permanently or temporarily employed by, studying at or officially connected with the College, should be aware that the College does not tolerate discrimination and harassment. College policy (English, Spanish) prohibits such behavior and, in some instances, such behavior violates civil and criminal laws.

This Scripps Title IX website is a resource for all Scripps community members and is intended to:

  • Introduce the community to the College’s Title IX team
  • Provide information on support services available to survivors of sexual violence
  • Provide information to help empower survivors to make the decisions that are right for them
  • Provide an overview of how cross-campus claims work (since the majority of cases involving Scripps students are cross-campus)
  • Provide information to help the community better understand the issue of sexual violence, including guidance on how to help a friend

The information available at the 7C Sexual Misconduct Resources website complements what is covered on this Title IX website.
