Policy Violations That May Not Also be Violations of Title IX
Providence College encourages reports of all forms of sexual misconduct, including conduct that does not meet the standards for illegal harassment or discrimination under Title IX as promulgated in the Federal Register by the U.S. Department of Education on May 19, 2020. Additionally, in the employment setting, the College prohibits discrimination in accordance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VII prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin; claims of sexual harassment in the employment setting are covered by this Policy. More information about policy violations that may not also be violations of Title IX is available in the Sexual Misconduct Policy (see link above).
