CUNY Sexual Misconduct Policy/Title IX
Hunter College is committted to maintaining a fair and equal environment for both its employees and student body, consistent with the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 which state that:
No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to, discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.
The CUNY Policy on Sexual Misconduct prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct, including but not limited to sexual harassment, gender-based harassment and sexual violance.
This Policy also prohibits retaliation for reporting or opposing discrimination, or cooperating with an investigation of a discrimination complaint.
Any individual who believes he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of gender in any area outside the purview of the Sexual Misconduct Policy may direct all inquiries, concerns and complaints to Dean John T. Rose, Hunter’s Title IX Coordinator. Any individual who believes that he or she has experienced any form of discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 may also contact the US Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights. In addition, Professor Jennifer Samson of the Department of Special Education is the college’s 504/ADA Coordinator. The Vice Presidents, Deans, Directors, Managers and Supervisors share responsibility for ensuring our compliance with these policies and laws.
These criteria are based on guidelines issued by the Office of Civil Rights, Department of Education.
