gender, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance." (Title 20 U.S.C. 1681-1688)
Overview of the Law
Any institution that receives any federal funding.
Applies to both K-12 and higher education.

*NU Policy
Types of Sexual Misconduct,
Sexual Violence and Sexual Harassment
Neumann University is committed to a Zero-Tolerance Harassment Policy. It is the practice of Neumann University that immediate effective action be taken to eliminate any hostile environment, prevent its recurrence, and remedy the effects on the victim regarding any harassment that interferes with or limits
a student's ability to participate in,
or benefit from school, including all
activities and services.
Neumann University Prohibits
Harassment and Retaliation
Includes unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature, requests for sexual favors, and other gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is severe, persistent, or pervasive enough to unreasonably interfere with an individual's educational experience or living conditions. Sexual harassment also occurs when submission to or rejection of such conduct denies or limits someone's ability to participate in or benefit from any University education program or
activity; or by creating an intimidating,
hostile, or offensive environment for
another person.
Sexual Harassment
Dating violence is violence committed by a person who is or has been in a social relationship of a romantic or intimate nature with the victim and where the existence of such a relationship shale be based on a consideration of the following factors:
length of time the relationship has existed
type of relationship
frequency of interaction between the persons involved in the relationship
Dating violence shall mean the use of abusive behaviors, including, but not limited to, internet, electronic, written, verbal, sexual or physical contact by a person to harm, threaten, intimidate, or control a current or former dating partner, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Dating Violence
Sexual assault is any physical contact that involves the use or threat of force or violence or any other form of coercion or intimidation; any sexual physical contact/indecent contact with another person without that person's consent, or any such contact with a person who is unable to consent due to incapacity or impairment, mental or physical. Incapacity normally includes, but is not limited to: being under the influence of alcohol or drugs; and any violation of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code.
Sexual Assault
Includes unwelcome conduct of a nonsexual nature based on a student's actual or perceived sex, including conduct based on gender identity, gender expression, and nonconformity with gender stereotypes.
Gender-Based Harassment
We have a legal and moral obligation to report.
Victim-centered process is a balance with the University's responsibility to provide an educational environment free from sex-based misconduct.
Extreme importance of following Neumann University's published policies.
Para-professional staff members
are required
to report alleged violations.
