Understanding Your Rights under the Seton Hill University Title IX Sexual Harassment, Non-Discrimination and Equal Opportunity Processes

Seton Hill University, as an educational institution and as an employer, values equality of opportunity, human dignity, and racial/ethnic and cultural diversity. Accordingly, the University prohibits and will not engage in discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, genetic information, age, marital status, familial status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or veteran status. Further, the University will continue to take affirmative steps to support and advance these values. This policy applies to admissions, employment, and access to and treatment in University programs and activities. This is a commitment made by the University and is in accordance with federal, state, and/or local laws and regulations.

Seton Hill will respond promptly and appropriately to any form of alleged misconduct under the Title IX Sexual Harassment or Non-Discrimination and Equal Opportunity Policies, and will take steps to prevent recurrence and to remedy its effects.

Meeting with the Title IX Coordinator does not require the victim to pursue a formal complaint. Those who have experienced sexual misconduct have the right to an advisor of choice.  (see rules for advisors)
