TITLE IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Consistent with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Snow College does not discriminate against students, faculty, or staff based on sex in any of its programs or activities, including, but not limited to, educational programs, employment, and admission. Sexual harassment, including sexual violence and sexual assault, is a type of sex discrimination and is prohibited by Title IX and by the College.  

The College is committed to responding promptly and effectively when it learns of any form of possible discrimination based on sex. The College responds to reports of sexual harassment, including sexual violence, as part of its efforts to stop the harassment and prevent its recurrence of possible sex discrimination.  An individual who has questions or concerns regarding possible discrimination based on sex should contact a Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Title IX Coordinator. An individual also may contact the U.S. Department of Education's, Office for Civil Rights (“OCR”) in Denver.

CLERY ACT

This Act is a federal law that requires colleges to:

  • Report crimes that occur on campus and list school safety policies each year in an Annual Security Report (ASR), which can be found on our website.
  • Issue timely warning when there are known risks to public safety on campus.
  • Have a Campus Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill of Rights, which requires colleges to disclose educational programs, campus disciplinary process, and victim rights regarding sexual violence complaints.

The Clery Act was expanded in 2013 by the Campus SaVE Act.

The Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SaVE)

The Clery Act was expanded in 2013 by the Campus SaVE Act. The Campus SaVE Act requires universities and colleges to provide “primary prevention and awareness programs” for new students and employees, as well as provide ongoing prevention and awareness campaigns. These educational programs must include certain aspects such as

  • A statement by the school that it prohibits acts of sexual violence.
  • The definition of various acts of sexual violence.
  • Education on bystander intervention.
  • Risk reduction programs so students can recognize and avoid abusive behaviors or potential attacks.
  • Information on the school’s reporting system and disciplinary proceedings.
  • How must colleges handle disciplinary proceedings?
    • “Prompt, fair, and impartial” disciplinary proceedings that ensure equitable process to both parties.
    • Officials conducting disciplinary proceedings must be trained annually on sexual violence* investigation and determinations.
    • Both the accuser and the accused have a right to have an adviser of their choice present during the disciplinary process.
    • Both the accuser and accused are required to receive the final results of a disciplinary proceeding in writing.
    • Both the accuser and accused have a right to appeal disciplinary proceeding decisions or changes to the final result.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

The Violence Against Women Act amends The Higher Education Act and The Clery Act  “to improve education and prevention related to campus sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.”
