Title IX and Sexual Violence

At Saint Augustine’s University, we believe that every person has the right to be healthy and safe and that our community should be characterized by mutual trust and respect among all members. Although the Saint Augustine’s University community is a relatively safe one, our community members are not immune to issues of sexual assault and violence. The National Institute of Justice and the Bureau of Justice Statistics provide a pretty startling picture with regards to sexual assault.

What is Title IX?

Title IX is the federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational institutions, programs and activities.
