Title IX Policies and Procedures

Guilford College has a longstanding mission to provide a transformative, practical and excellent liberal arts education that produces critical thinkers in an inclusive, diverse environment, guided by Quaker testimonies of community, equality, integrity, peace and simplicity and emphasizing the creative problem-solving skills, experience, enthusiasm and international perspectives necessary to promote positive change in the world.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any educational programs or activities that receive federal funding, whether they take place in the facilities of a school or at an event sponsored by the school at another location. While perhaps best known for its application to program equity, such as in athletics, Title IX also applies to sexual harassment (including sexual assault) that prevents students from participating fully and equitably in educational opportunities. Guilford College is committed to upholding the principles of Title IX by responding promptly and thoroughly to all complaints/reports of sex discrimination, harassment or violence.
