Title IX Logo

Calumet College of St. Joseph is committed to providing a community in which the learning and working environment reflect our Mission. This environment is free from all forms of gender-based discrimination or harassment because such behavior violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity. Calumet College of St. Joseph’s considers gender-based discrimination to be a serious offense and has zero tolerance. This policy covers all forms of gender-based discrimination and harassment connected to the college, whether the matter involves students, faculty, staff or volunteers. This policy also applies to sexual misconduct, including sexual assault, sexual exploitation and relationship violence by students, faculty, staff, or visitors/guests of the college.

In compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other federal, state and local equal opportunity laws and in accordance with our mission, the College has developed these policies and procedures that prohibit gender-based discrimination in all of its forms. The policies and procedures have been developed to affirm our commitment and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated. This policy is intended to define community expectations and to establish a mechanism for determining when those expectations have been violated.
