Augustana University believes that sexual misconduct is a violation of not only an individual’s rights and dignity; it is an act that affects the entire campus community. These policies, procedures and resources have been developed with guidance issued by the United States Department of Education and its Office of Civil Rights. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq., has specific requirements for colleges and universities which prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. Sexual misconduct, as defined by Title IX, is a form of sex discrimination.
