Title IX is a federal civil rights law enacted as part of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 that prohibits sex-based discrimination in schools, educational programs and other places or activities that receive federal assistance.
Sexual harassment in any form will not be tolerated at Kean University. Sexual harassment violates the dignity and rights of the University community. In addition, it is a form of sexual discrimination prohibited by the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, N.J.S.A. 10:5-1 et seq, Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (as amended in 1991). The Board of Trustees of Kean University recognizes its responsibility to ensure a working and learning environment free from discrimination, including sexual harassment. The University prohibits sexual harassment in accordance with campus policies and state and federal law. The University follows the New Jersey State Policy Prohibiting Discrimination in the Workplace. Depending on the complaint, violations of the policy may be adjudicated through the Kean University student conduct process or the Office of Affirmative Action Programs. All complaints of sexual harassment by employees should be brought to the attention of the Affirmative Action Officer immediately. Delayed reporting may impede a satisfactory resolution or hamper a proper investigation.
