Sexual misconduct, as defined in Emerson’s Sexual Misconduct Policy, is a form of sex discrimination that unjustly deprives a person of equal treatment. Such misconduct is prohibited by Title IX, a federal law that provides:
No person in the United 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.
Sexual harassment is also prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 151B, Massachusetts Fair Education Practices Act, Massachusetts General Laws 151 C, Section 2(g), and other applicable state and federal statutes.
The Sexual Misconduct Policy prohibits sexual misconduct committed by any College community members, regardless of gender related status. This policy also prohibits gender-based harassment and violence that may not involve conduct of a sexual nature, including, but not limited to, certain reports of domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking.
