Title IX statement
Skidmore College is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that reflects and promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect. Members of the Skidmore community have the right to be free from all forms of abuse, assault, harassment and coercive conduct, including sexual and gender-based misconduct, as defined in this policy. Skidmore College considers sexual and gender-based misconduct to be one of the most serious violations of the values and standards of the college. Unwelcome sexual contact of any form is a violation of students’ personal integrity and their right to a safe environment and therefore violates Skidmore’s values. Skidmore College will not tolerate sexual or gender-based misconduct in any form. Sexual and gender-based misconduct is also prohibited by federal regulations. In accordance with Title IX, Skidmore College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any of its programs and activities.
Title IX reporting responsibilities
Skidmore College faculty are committed to supporting our students and upholding gender equity laws as outlined by Title IX. Therefore if a student chooses to confide in a member of Skidmore’s faculty or staff regarding an issue of sexual or gender-based misconduct, that faculty or staff member is obligated to tell Skidmore’s Title IX coordinator. The Title IX coordinator will assist the student in connecting with all possible resources for support and reporting both on and off campus.
