Equal Opportunity and Title IX Compliance

“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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 Amended the Higher Education Act of 1965.  Implementing Regulations at: 20 U.S.C. § 1681 & 34 C.F.R. Part 106)

The content below includes information from within the Nondiscrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy, including reporting information, investigation procedures and resources for complainants and respondents.

We Find Strength in Our Community

Regis University does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, disability, age, religion, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, parental status, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic information or any other legally protected status ["protected class"] in any of its policies, programs, admissions or activities and provides equal access to education.

Reporting to the EO & Title IX Coordinator

Reports can be made by mail, email, orally or in writing, to the EO & Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy EO & Title IX Coordinator. Deputy EO & Title IX Coordinators submit the report to the EO & Title IX Coordinator. Written reports should include as much detail as is possible. An EO & Title IX Coordinator, a responsible employee, or a confidential resource can also assist a complainant or reporting party with facilitating a report. The University encourages reports to be made in good faith, even if incomplete or erroneous, but will not tolerate intentional or malicious false reporting of incidents.

After receiving a report, the EO & Title IX Coordinator or designee may request additional information. Prompt filing of a complaint is strongly encouraged. A complaint that is made more than 120 days after the alleged incident may make fact finding difficult or impossible and the University may elect to not investigate in its sole discretion. A complaint may be withdrawn at any time after it is filed. However, withdrawal of a complaint does not necessarily result in the termination of the University's inquiry or investigation.

Report Discrimination, Bias, and Retaliation

Report Discrimination, Bias, and Retaliation on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, gender, disability, age, religion, veteran status, marital status, pregnancy, parental status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, genetic information or any other legally protected status.

Report Sexual Misconduct

Report Sexual Misconduct: Sexual Harassment, Nonconsensual Sexual Contact, Nonconsensual Sexual Penetration, Sexual Exploitation, Intimate Partner Violence, Stalking, and any sexual conduct that takes place without consent.
