Introduction to this Guide
"Janie full of that oldest human longing--self revelation." ~Zora Neale Hurston
This guide is a resource for students of marginalized identities, and students who seek to be allies for different communities of people whose identities are marginalized. This guide is intended to combat racism, sexism, xenophobia and all other forms of oppression that students may experience, through providing links to web resources and library resources, as well as language that can be used to engage in effective dialog about such issues.
SEX DISCRIMINATION, HARASSMENT, & ASSAULT
"Sexual harassment is unwelcome, gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it has the effect of interfering with, denying or limiting someone’s ability to participate in or benefit from the college’s educational program and/or activities, and is based on power differential (quid pro quo), the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.
Sexual misconduct is a form of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX. Sexual misconduct refers to “physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent due to the victim’s use of drugs or alcohol. An individual also may be unable to give consent due to an intellectual or other disability.” Sexual misconduct includes rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion."
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106
