3.4 - Title IX and Interpersonal Violence Response Office - Responding to Sex Discrimination Reports

Sex Discrimination is prohibited by Title IX and by Xavier’s Title IX Sexual Harassment policies (Section 2.3.3.1) in certain circumstances and by Xavier’s Interpersonal Violence policies (Section 2.3.3.2) in others. More information about the differences in these policies, including examples, can be found in Section 2.3.3 ("Sex Discrimination) of this Handbook and in the Xavier Harassment Code and Accountability Procedures (www.xavier.edu/policy/hcap).

When Xavier receives a report of Sex Discrimination, the Title IX and Interpersonal Violence Response Office (hereinafter Title IX Office) will determine whether that report will be addressed under Xavier’s Title IX Sexual Harassment policies or Xavier’s Interpersonal Violence policies. Both policies are set forth below.
