We are committed to creating an atmosphere of equality, free of all forms of discrimination and harassment.
What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: "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."
Here at Widener, we are dedicated to upholding Title IX and fostering an environment that provides equal learning opportunities for all of our students.
We are also committed to creating and sustaining a safe environment for all students and employees. Our Equal Opportunity, Harassment, and Nondiscrimination Policy (EOHN) prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct and assault on campus. Upon receiving a report of misconduct, we will address the matter as quickly and fairly as possible. Please review the Statement of Party Rights to learn about the rights, accommodations, and protective measures available to individuals involved in the resolution process as outlined in the EOHN Policy.
Section 106.45(b) of the 2020 Final Title IX Rules requires the university to publicly post “all materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process.”
Widener University's Title IX Coordinator, investigators, and decision makers were trained by Grand River Solutions. The training materials can be viewed below:
