Knox College affirms its commitment to create and maintain an environment free from acts of Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct, and to foster within that environment respect for the dignity of all members of the community. Accordingly, Knox College will not tolerate any acts of Title IX Sexual Harassment or Sexual Misconduct.

What To Do If You Experience Title IX Sexual Harassment or Sexual Misconduct

It is most important to do what is right for you. There is no right or wrong way to respond to an act of Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct. If you or someone you know has been assaulted, a variety of resources are available and we encourage you to consider the following actions:

Seek Medical Care

Seek medical attention at a local hospital. In the emergency room, doctors and nurses can treat any injuries, test for and treat sexually transmitted infections, and test for pregnancy. A medical exam will also help collect evidence in case you decide now or at a later time to pursue criminal charges or legal action.

Seek Support from a Confidential Source

Talk to someone you trust. There are people on campus and in the community who are trained to help you cope with the experience and examine your options.

Reporting

Anyone who feels that s/he has been the victim of Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct is encouraged to bring it to the attention of the Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator is empowered to provide support measures for all individuals involved in these situations and to protect the safety of the campus community through these measures.

If Someone You Know Is Assaulted

As a supportive friend or ally, you provide support, give assurance that College and community resources are available to help, and offer assistance to access these resources.

What is Title IX Sexual Harassment?

Title IX Sexual Harassment is conduct on the basis of sex that constitutes Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment, Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, or Stalking.

  1. “Sexual Harassment” is conduct on the basis of sex that constitutes Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment, Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, or Stalking.
  2. “Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment” is an employee of the College conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or service of the College on an individual’s participation in unwelcome sexual contact.
  3. “Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment” is unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person access to the College’s Education Programs and Activities.
  4. “Sexual Assault” includes the sex offenses of Rape, Sodomy, Sexual Assault with an Object, Fondling, Incest, and Statutory Rape.

What is Sexual Misconduct?

Prohibited Sexual Misconduct includes sex-based discrimination and harassment that does not fall within the narrower definition of Title IX Sexual Harassment. It also includes:

  1. Sexual Harassment that occurs outside the College’s Education Programs and Activities or outside the United States (such as in a study abroad program);
  2. Inducing Incapacitation for Sexual Purposes; and
  3. Sexual Exploitation.
