Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:

How do you report sexual misconduct?

If you, or someone you know, have experienced sexual misconduct we want you to know there are many people on Crown’s campus who are ready and willing to help. Students, faculty, and staff should report the incident to any trusted faculty or staff member, however, know that they may be legally mandated to report the situation.

If you are unsure of someone’s duties and ability to maintain your privacy, ask them before you provide details of your situation.

Counseling Services and Health Services staff offer complete confidentiality, providing choices and advice without obligation to tell anyone unless requested.
