Sex Discrimination

Lebanon Valley College prohibits discrimination against its employees and students on the basis of sex, and will not tolerate sex discrimination, whether in the form of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, or any other form of sexual misconduct. Sex discrimination is contrary to the values of Lebanon Valley College and may constitute a violation of the College’s Title IX Policy, Student Conduct Code, and/or policies applicable to faculty and staff.

Reporting Sexual Harassment, Sexual Misconduct, Sexual Assault & Dating Violence

Persons who believe they have experienced any form of sex discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual misconduct, are encouraged to report the incident immediately.

Confidential support is also available. A copy of LVC’s Sexual Misconduct Guide is available in the Office of Campus Safety.

Anyone wishing to report a potential violation of the Title IX Policy or any other College policy addressing sex discrimination may make a report to the Title IX coordinator, a deputy Title IX Coordinator, the Vice President of Student Affairs, the Associate Dean of Student Affairs, Residential Life Staff, or the Office of Campus Safety.
