Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence
Salve Regina strives to provide an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment and other unreasonable interference. Although the University promotes freedom of expression, this freedom implies a responsibility to observe the rights of others. Conduct that diminishes, exploits or abuses another's position or personal worth is not acceptable, and harassment in any form is not tolerated. The University maintains a policy of zero tolerance for sexual harassment and sexual violence, regardless of the sexual orientation or gender identity of individuals involved. Zero tolerance means the University will remedy all unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature and will impose serious sanctions on anyone who violates this policy. Resolution by the University is intended to bring an end to harassing or discriminatory conduct, prevent its recurrence and remedy the effects on the complainant and the community.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 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 education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
