Smith College Sexual Misconduct Policy

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) and other relevant federal and state laws prohibit sex discrimination in education and employment. Sexual misconduct that unreasonably interferes with the academic and professional experience of any member of the community on the College’s campus or in other settings related to the College’s educational offerings, programs, activities or employment is a form of sex discrimination that is prohibited by the College.

Under the College’s Sexual Misconduct Policy, the College will promptly respond to complaints of sexual misconduct and, where it is determined that such misconduct has occurred, will take measures to eliminate the conduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects, including imposing corrective action as appropriate.
