Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex for any college or university that receives federal financial funding. Title IX 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 program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
Title IX covers all forms of sexual violence, including but not limited to sexual harassment, rape, sexual assault, coercion, and intimate partner violence. Mansfield University is committed to ensuring that all reports of sexual violence including assault reported by an individual are promptly addressed to determine what occurred, take interim steps to protect the individual if necessary, provide a timely response to end any violence, prevent its recurrence and eliminate the effects of any discrimination.
Reports of sexual assault and harassment should be made to the Title IX Coordinator who is charged with overseeing the University’s investigation and resolution of reports of sexual violence as well as coordinating the University’s compliance with Title IX.
The President of Mansfield University has appointed Dia M. Carleton, J.D., Executive Director for Employee and Leadership Services as the Title IX Coordinator. Reports may also be made to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator, Mr. Alan Zellner.
