WHO IS PROTECTED

Both males and females are protected. Title IX prohibits discrimination, exclusion, denial, limitation, or separation based on gender in educational programs or activities. Title IX is not just for athletes- it protects all students and can apply to employees, too. Title IX protects, whether the harassment is aimed at gay or lesbian sexual orientation, or is perpetrated by individuals of the same or opposite sex

WHO CAN FILE A COMPLAINT

The Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) encourages anyone who is aware of incidents that may violate our policy to contact us so we can look into the matter. And under the university's policy, supervisors and administrators are required to report complaints of discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence to the Office of Institutional Equity (reports of sexual violence can be made to the Director of the Women's Center).

Kansas State University’s Policy Prohibiting Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Violence

Kansas State University will maintain academic, housing, and work environments that are free of discrimination, harassment (including sexual harassment and sexual violence), and retaliation. Discrimination based on race, color, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, age, ancestry, disability, genetic information, military status, or veteran status is prohibited. Retaliation against a person for reporting or objecting to discrimination or harassment is a violation of this Policy, whether or not discrimination or harassment occurred. This Policy is not intended for, and will not be used to, infringe on academic freedom or to censor or punish students, faculty, employees, or staff who exercise their legitimate First Amendment rights.
