Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, including on the basis of sex stereotypes, in education programs and activities. All colleges and universities that receive federal funds must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. §§ 1681 et seq. and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106. Because harassment, including sexual harassment, is prohibited by federal and state laws, LIBI strictly forbids harassment of any kind, and will swiftly take appropriate action to address any violations of this policy. Harassment is any verbal (can include verbal taunting, including racial and ethnic slurs) or physical conduct designed to threaten, intimidate or coerce that, in the victim’s opinion, impairs his/her access to LIBI’s programs or activities. Harassing conduct may take many forms, including verbal acts and name calling; graphic and written statements, which may include use of cell phones or the Internet; or other conduct that may be physically threatening, harmful, or humiliating. Harassment does not have to include intent to harm, be directed at a specific target, or involve repeated incidents. Harassment creates a hostile environment when the conduct is sufficiently severe, pervasive, or persistent so as to interfere with or limit a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or opportunities offered by LIBI. When such harassment is based on race, color, national origin, sex, or disability, it violates the civil rights laws that the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces.
