TITLE IX NOTICE OF NONDISCRIMINATION

In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Saint Augustine’s University (SAU) does not discriminate on the basis of sex or gender in any of its programs or activities including, but not limited to, admissions, financial aid, academics, athletics, career services, counseling and medical services, and employment.

SAU is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for our students, visitors, faculty, and staff. Members of the SAU community have the right to be free from gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct of any nature, including sexual harassment, stalking, sexual exploitation, or sexual violence.

To ensure compliance with Title IX, each University must designate a Title IX Coordinator to evaluate current policies and practices, coordinate efforts to effectively and efficiently respond to complaints of sex or gender discrimination, and ensure as much as possible that every SAU student and employee has equal education and employment opportunities. SAU’s designated Title IX Coordinator is the Associate Vice President for Administration.

For further information regarding Title IX, please contact Saint Augustine’s Title IX Coordinator:

PROHIBITED CONDUCT

SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

Sexual misconduct is defined as any act of a sexual nature perpetrated against an individual without their informed, and voluntary consent. 

The following forms and behaviors are prohibited at SAU:

• Gender Discrimination
• Sexual Harassment
• Sexual Intimidation
• Sexual Assault
• Sexual Exploitation
• Relationship Violence (including dating and domestic violence)
• Stalking or Cyberstalking

Sexual misconduct is not limited to the educational environment or workplace. It can extend beyond University property and may occur at any University sponsored program, activity or event, regardless of the location. Sexual misconduct can occur out of state or out of the country, at a conference or while studying abroad. 

RETALIATION

Every member of the University Community has the right to file a complaint of discrimination or sexual misconduct without fear of retaliation. It is both unlawful, and a violation of University policy to retaliate against anyone who raises an allegation of sexual misconduct cooperates in an investigation or opposes discriminatory practices. 

Retaliation may include intimidation, threats, coercion, or unfavorable educational or employment actions. Any individual who engages in retaliation will be subject to prompt and appropriate disciplinary action. Any individual who feels that they have been subjected to retaliation should contact the Title IX Coordinator. 

PROVIDING FALSE INFORMATION

A charge of sexual misconduct may have severe consequences. Submitting a complaint under this policy that is not made in good faith, or that contains false or misleading information is prohibited. Any complainant or witness who makes a report of sexual misconduct and is found to have intentionally given false information during an investigation may also be subject to disciplinary action. This provision does not apply to reports made in good faith, where the facts alleged in the complaint are not substantiated by an investigation.

If you or someone you know has been subjected to any form of sexual misconduct or gender-based discrimination, you are encouraged to seek immediate assistance. All reports of sexual misconduct or discrimination should be made to the University’s Title IX Coordinator.
