Knox College Policy and Procedures Addressing Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, and Interpersonal Violence
Knox College does not tolerate sex discrimination, sexual misconduct, or interpersonal violence. Any violation of these policies may be subject to disciplinary action. The College's Sex Discrimination, Sexual Misconduct, and Interpersonal Violence Resolution Procedures have been established to address complaints alleging that a student has violated this Policy. Complaints alleging sex discrimination, sexual misconduct, and interpersonal violence against a staff or faculty member should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator and will be handled according to the Grievance Procedures in the Faculty Handbook and the Employee Handbook.
It is important that every member of the College community understands that College policy prohibits discrimination and harassment and other conduct prohibited by this Policy between all members of the College community: for example, between an instructor and a student, between two students, or between a student and an applicant or campus guest. This Policy applies in all College programs and activities, including, but not limited to, discrimination in athletics, instruction, grading, College housing, and College employment. Knox offers Discrimination Harassment Training for all students, faculty, and staff that includes Haven interactive online training.
In addition, the College prohibits retaliation against an individual for opposing any practices forbidden under this Policy, for bringing a complaint alleging a violation of this Policy, for assisting someone with such a complaint, for attempting to stop such discrimination or harassment or other conduct prohibited by this Policy, or for participating in any manner in an investigation or resolution of a complaint of discrimination or harassment or other alleged violation of this policy. It is central to the values of the College that any individual who believes they may have been the target of prohibited discrimination or harassment feels free to report their concerns for appropriate investigation and response, without fear of retaliation or retribution.
