“No person in the Unites 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.”
-Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. §1681 et.seq.) Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Claremont Lincoln University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a type of sex discrimination and is prohibited under Title IX and by the University. The University encourages any student or employee who thinks they have been subjected to sex discrimination or sexual harassment, including sexual violence, by another student, member of the faculty or staff, campus visitor or contractor, to immediately report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator whose information is listed below.
CLU does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, gender identity, gender transition status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, ancestry, marital status, age, sexual orientation, citizenship, or service in the armed services, including protected veterans, or any other characteristic protected by law, in the administration of its educational programs, recruitment, activities, policies, or employment. Additionally, the University prohibits harassment based on the above-protected characteristics of a student, applicant, alumnus, faculty, employee, vendor, contractor, or any other person participating in any educational program or otherwise associated with the University.
The University complies with federal and state equal opportunity laws and regulations and finds harassment and discrimination to be antithetical to the University’s mission, values, and educational goals.
Beyond our commitment to nondiscrimination and an environment free of harassment, CLU works proactively to invite the many and varied contributions of all faculty and staff as we support all students to bring their authentic selves to their educational experience. We understand that diversity is representation of difference, inclusion is embracing diverse representation and that all voices are valued, and equity requires us to build and maintain strategies to ensure access and opportunity regardless of any trait or characteristic.
