Title IX at Scripps College

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

“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.” 

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination at educational institutions, including colleges. More recently, Title IX has become shorthand for referring to incidents of sexual misconduct on college campuses, which includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. In May 2020, the Department of Education published new regulations that provide specific definition for sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking, as well as describing the scope of investigations into matters that fall with those definitions and requirements for investigating those matters. Matters that fall within these definitions will be addressed under The Claremont Colleges Title IX Adjudication Policy (TCC Policy). However, Scripps community members will still report to sexual harassment to and work with the Scripps Title IX Coordinator. In addition, other forms of sexual harassment that do not fall within the scope of the TCC Policy may still be addressed by the Scripps Discrimination and Harassment Policies and Grievance Procedures. (English, Spanish)

Scripps seeks to maintain an environment in which our community members can live, learn and work free from these forms of discrimination. We recognize that incidents of sexual harassment may create barriers to the goals of our students, staff and faculty, and our purpose is to respond to, remedy, and prevent the recurrence of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating 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. College policy prohibits such behavior, and, in some instances, such behavior may violate civil and criminal laws.
