Furman University neither tolerates nor condones sexual harassment, gender discrimination or sexual misconduct. These actions are contradictory to our values. We are committed to creating a safe and supportive campus, and to educating individuals to become responsible citizens and leaders. This site includes reporting access, support and resources information, policies, risk reduction information, and key on- and off-campus contacts.
What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972, which amended the Civil Rights Act of 1964, states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” (20 USC 1681)
Report Sexual Misconduct
Complaints should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator of the complainant’s choice/preference and/or personal comfort level. The complainant may be a student, faculty, staff or visitor on campus. You may file a complaint by meeting with the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator of your choice or by completing a Sexual Misconduct Report Form. Also see Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Options at Furman below.
