RIT will not discriminate in terms and conditions of employment, admission, and participation in programs or residential life. The policy prohibits discrimination and harassment on campus, or at any RIT activities off campus, by its administrators, faculty, staff, students and student organizations, and external organizations and individuals in their operations with RIT.
All students, faculty, and staff are protected under Title IX and have the right to file an internal complaint if you or someone you know at RIT has experienced any of the following prohibited behaviors:
Sexual Misconduct (including sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking)
The Title IX Coordinator has overall responsibility for the university's institutional compliance with Title IX.
April 2021 - Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Sexual harassment, assault, and abuse can happen anywhere, including in online spaces. As we connect online, we can learn how to practice digital consent, intervene when we see harmful content or behaviors, and ensure that online spaces — whether they be workspaces, classrooms, social media platforms, or otherwise — are respectful and safe.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month — a time to draw attention to the prevalence of sexual assault and educate individuals and communities about how to prevent it. Sexual harassment, abuse, and assault are widespread problems. We know that, in the United States alone, nearly one in five women and one in 67 men have been raped at some time in their lives (Smith et al., 2017), and that one in six boys and one in four girls is sexually abused before the age of 18 (Dube et al., 2005).
As the Title IX Coordinator and Director, Stacy is responsible for overseeing the university’s compliance with Title IX, the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and related reporting and disclosure laws concerning campus safety.
As the Title IX Investigator, Catherine conducts investigations of sex discrimination claims made against any employee of the university. Catherine serves as the point of contact between Public Safety, Student Conduct, and Human Resources for Title IX investigations.
Darci is a Deputy Title IX Coordinator and is responsible for ensuring the Title IX processes are followed including compliance with all laws and policies related to sex and gender based harassment and discrimination. Darci collaborates with various campus partners to deliver training and serves as a resource and subject matter expert for the RIT community. To ensure equity in the Title IX process, Darci works with all parties involved in any cases or situations of concern.
