This policy is part of the Student Handbook.

Sexual and Gender-based Misconduct, Title IX Statement

In accordance with Title IX and other local, state, and federal laws, Northland College is committed to providing an environment free of all forms of discrimination, including sex and gender-based discrimination. This includes, but is not limited to, sexual violence, sexual harassment, dating violence, and stalking. If you or someone you know has been affected or is currently being affected by these types of behaviors that are limiting their ability to participate in this course or any other Northland College-sponsored program or activity, please know that there are options, and resources are available. I am not a confidential resource. As a faculty member, I am considered a mandatory reporter and am required to report incidents of sex and gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct to the Title IX coordinator, as we want to ensure that you are connected with the campus support resources offered by the College. You can also make a report by contacting the Title IX coordinator directly. To learn more, please visit the Northland College Title IX page.
