Title IX: Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct

In compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Goodwin University prohibits discrimination based on sex in all of its educational programs or activities. Members of the Goodwin community, guests and visitors have the right to be part of a community that is free of sexual harassment.

All members of the Goodwin community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Goodwin believes in a zero-tolerance policy for gender-based and sexual harassment. When an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator's attention, and a respondent is found to have violated this policy, serious sanctions may be used to deter future misconduct. The Gender-based and Sexual Harassment Policy has been developed to reaffirm these principles and to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated. This policy is intended to define community expectations and to establish a mechanism for determining when those expectations have been violated.
