Title IX Information on Sexual Harassment and Assault
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads: "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." Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault.
At ACU, we strive to comply with all applicable legal requirements prohibiting harassment against any member of the ACU community. Moreover, as a Christian community, ACU has committed itself, unequivocally, to ensuring a working and learning environment in which the dignity of every individual is respected.
If you experience sexual harassment or assault or know someone that has, we encourage you to report it so that we can help maintain a work and academic environment free of unlawful harassment.
