EAC | Title IX

Jurisdiction Procedures

Sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence can be a complex and painful experience that can require many different types of support including medical, legal, psychological, and academic resources. Useful resources are available to all EAC students, and may be located on campus, within the community, or nationally based.

Jurisdiction under the EAC Title IX Sexual Harassment/Discrimination policy is limited to:

What happens when the Respondent is not a member of the EAC community?

In situations where the Respondent is not a member of the EAC community, the Title IX Coordinator will still offer the Complainant supportive measures and resources. Supportive measures include, but are not limited to:

Resources may include, but are not limited to:

What about conduct/behaviors that occur off-campus but where both the Complainant and Respondent are members of the EAC community?

In these situations, the Title IX Coordinator will address the notice/complaint to determine whether the conduct/behavior occurred in the context of EAC employment or an educational program or activity and/or if the conduct/behavior has continuing effects on campus or in an off-campus sponsored program or activity. A continuing effect on campus or in an off-campus sponsored program or activity includes:

What about if the conduct alleged in the Title IX complaint is determined not to meet the Title IX definition of sexual harassment/discrimination?

In the event the conduct alleged in the Title IX complaint is determined to not meet the regulatory definition of sexual harassment/discrimination, but does fall within the jurisdiction of EAC, the Title IX Coordinator will refer the complaint to the appropriate conduct body, which means student affairs for student code of conduct issues and Human Resources for employee conduct issues.
