Title IX Regulations

Rowan University is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming educational and working environment free of all forms of sexual misconduct. The Office of Student Equity and Compliance (OSEC) provides information regarding our policies and procedures related to sexual misconduct and other onsite and offsite support services and resources. We encourage you to consult with the University Title IX Coordinator to report any concerns.

Rowan community members are urged to review the full text of the following policies:

  • Title IX Sexual Harassment/Sexual Assault – this policy applies to both students and employees. It addresses allegations of sexual misconduct that fall within the U.S. Department of Education’s Title IX regulations. The policy’s jurisdiction is limited in scope to Title IX Sexual Harassment/Sexual Assault (as defined in the policy) that meets the following requirements: (1) occurs within the United States, (ii) occurs within the University’s education program or activity; and (iii) at the time of the filing of a formal complaint, the Complainant was participating in, or attempting to participate in, the education program or activity.
  • Student Sexual Misconduct and Harassment Policy – this policy applies only to students. It addresses allegations of sexual misconduct that do not fall within the definitional or jurisdictional requirements of the Title IX regulations. For example, it will apply to allegations of sexual exploitation; or sexual harassment/sexual assault that does not occur on campus or in an education program or activity.

Complaints of sexual misconduct against employees that are not covered by the Title IX Sexual Harassment/Sexual Assault Policy, will be addressed under the Policy Prohibiting Discrimination in the Workplace and Educational Environment

In addition, confidential resources are available to assist in accessing counseling and support services.

Training as mandated by OCR:

In response to 34 CFR Part 106.45(b)(10) of the 2020 Title IX Regulations that mandates the public sharing of materials used to train school and college Title IX team members, Rowan has created a Title IX Schedule of Training containing links to training materials.
