Continuing Our Commitment to Title IX Enforcement

As the federal government begins a national conversation on Title IX enforcement, I want to assure you the health and safety of our University community is very important to us.

We will continue to constantly work with our community to provide violence prevention and intervention education. And we will continue to create an environment where anyone feels comfortable reporting sexual violence, so we can provide victims the help they need and we can hold perpetrators accountable.

Discrimination, harassment, or any other conduct that diminishes the worth of a person is incompatible with our fundamental commitment as a Catholic university conducted in the Marianist tradition, and therefore is prohibited by the University.

The University will monitor the national discussion closely and consider offering input during the Department of Education's public comment process.

Regardless of any changes, the University will remain committed to a fair adjudication process and supporting survivors and preventing future violence.

Please read more about our policies and procedures governing Title IX compliance in our nondiscrimination resource center.

-- Eric F. Spina, president
