Bard College's Anti Harassment Policies

July 1, 2012

In order to protect & support our community from all forms of harassment, we have developed policies directed towards preventing harassment, workplace violence & governing consensual relations. Click below to read the policies & for information on how to report harassment.

Title IX

What Is Title IX?

The federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions is Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972 (amending the Higher Education Act of 1965). This act is codified as Title 20, United States Code, Chapter 38, Sections 1681-1686. The act was also amended by the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 ("Title IX").

The law states that "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." The amendment in 1987 expanded the definition of program or activity to include all the operations of an educational institution, governmental entity, or private employer that receives federal funds
