Sexual Misconduct/Title IX

Sexual Misconduct/Title IX

All members of the University community have the right to be free from any form of sexual violence, harassment or exploitation. If you have been sexually assaulted, experienced domestic or dating violence, stalking, sexual harassment or any form of sexual exploitation, you may choose to report it. You may choose to report the incident to the police and/or to Rowan University. You may pursue either, both or none of these options.  

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in all educational settings for both students and employees. The law states:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
– Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)

Rowan University does not discriminate on the basis of sex and all members of the University community have the right to be free from any form of sexual violence, sexual harassment, or sexual exploitation. Rowan University does not tolerate sexual harassment or sexual misconduct of any kind. 



On May 6, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued new regulations under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities receiving federal financial assistance. Similar to all educational institutions receiving federal funding, Rowan was required to amend its current policies to implement these new regulations. As a result, updates to Rowan’s policies related to sexual misconduct were made consistent with these regulations, as well as other applicable laws, including the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013.
