Rose-Hulman affirms its commitment to promote the goals of fairness and equity in all aspects of the educational enterprise. All policies below are subject to resolution using the Rose-Hulman Title IX Policy and Procedures posted at: www.rose-hulman.edu/about-us/human-resources/title-ix-policies-procedure.pdf. The Title IX complaint process is applicable regardless of the status of the parties involved, who may be members or non-members of the campus community, students, student organizations, faculty, administrators and/or staff. Rose-Hulman reserves the right to act on incidents occurring on-campus or off-campus, when the off-campus conduct could have an on-campus impact or impact on the educational mission of Rose-Hulman.
Kristen Bardou Loyd, Director of the Union and Student Activities Office serves as the Title IX Coordinator for Rose-Hulman. Reports of discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation should be made to the Title IX Coordinator promptly, but there is no time limitation on the filing of complaints, as long as the responding party remains subject to Rose-Hulman jurisdiction. All reports are acted upon promptly while every effort is made by the Institute to preserve the privacy of reports. Anonymous reports may also be filed using the reporting form posted at www.rose-hulman.edu/about-us/human-resources/incident-report-form.pdf. Reporting is addressed more specifically in Section 4. Reports of discrimination by the Title IX Coordinator should be reported to the Institute President, Robert Coons (office - Hadley Hall 200, email - firstname.lastname@example.org, phone - 812-877-8009).
This policy applies to all discriminatory behaviors that take place on the campus, at Institute-sponsored events and may also apply off-campus and to actions online when the Title IX Coordinator determines that the off-campus conduct affects a substantial Rose-Hulman interest. A substantial Rose-Hulman interest is defined to include:
- a) Any action that constitutes criminal offense as defined by federal or Indiana law. This includes, but is not limited to, single or repeat violations of any local, state or federal law committed in the municipality where Rose-Hulman is located;
- b) Any situation where it appears that the responding party may present a danger or threat to the health or safety of self or others;
- c) Any situation that significantly impinges upon the rights, property or achievements of self or others or significantly breaches the peace and/or causes social disorder; and/or
- d) Any situation that is detrimental to the educational interests of Rose-Hulman.
