Title IX is the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in higher education institutions that receive federal funding. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act added domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking to the list of sex offenses that higher education institutions must investigate and report in their Annual Security Report.

We strive to keep our campus as safe and secure as possible. However, it is important for individuals to be prepared for emergency situations.
