About Title IX at Harvard College

In accordance with the Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy and Procedures for the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University, Harvard College is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the College community is, on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identify, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any College program or activity. Gender-based and sexual harassment, including sexual violence, are forms of sex discrimination in that they deny or limit an individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from College programs or activities.

Consistent with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Harvard 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, is a kind of sex discrimination and is prohibited by Title IX and by the University. 

Harvard University has designated Title IX Coordinators throughout the University to help address issues of sexual and gender-based harassment within their specific unit or school. The College’s Title IX Coordinators for students play an integral role in ensuring that all students have access to the myriad resources and opportunities that Harvard College has to offer, both in and outside the classroom, recognizing that this access is critical to facilitating the intellectual, social, and personal transformations that a liberal arts and sciences education has to offer.
