Notice of Non-Discrimination
In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, it is the policy of Wabash College that no Wabash student will be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination in any education program or activity on the basis of sex. A student may not, on the basis of sex, be limited in the enjoyment of any right, privilege, advantage, or opportunity, including courses, extracurricular activities, benefits, and facilities.
This policy against sex discrimination includes a prohibition against sexual harassment, including sexual violence. Sexual harassment consists of sexual advances, sexual gestures, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is unwelcome and that limits or denies, on the basis of sex, a student’s ability to participate in and benefit from the College’s education program; sexual harassment is further defined in greater detail in the College’s Title IX policy. This policy prohibits sex discrimination by an employee or agent of the College, by another student, and by third parties who come into contact with students at College, or at College-related activities. The accused harasser can be either male or female, and the target of the harassment can be either male or female. The accused harasser and target can be of the same gender. Title IX applies regardless of the accused harasser’s or target’s actual or perceived sexual orientation. Sex discrimination prohibited by this policy can include being harassed for failing to conform to stereotypical notions about how a person of the target’s gender should behave.
Reports of discrimination and requests for accommodation regarding disabilities may be made to Wabash's title IX Coordinator, Associate Dean Heather Thrush, in Center Hall 112-A, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 765-361-6437. Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be made to the Title IX Coordinator and/or the Assistant Secretary of the United States Department of Education.
