Sexual/Gender-Based Misconduct (Title IX)
Sexual/Gender-Based Misconduct Policy
Post University is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that is open, supportive, and safe. As a community, this University will not tolerate sexual misconduct or discrimination of any kind in its education programs or activities, as well as in its admissions process or employment. Students found engaging in it will be subject to University action and may be subject to criminal charges and prosecution under federal and state laws.
This Sexual/Gender-Based Misconduct informs the Post University community of our values and outlines violations of a sexual nature. This policy identifies a student’s rights, options, and resources, and describes actions individuals may take if they experience an incident of sexual misconduct, or are accused of sexual misconduct.
Post University recognizes that part of students’ development at the University may include learning and understanding themselves as sexual individuals. Post University also respects and upholds the principle that not all students find it necessary to explore their sexual nature or sexuality. Post therefore aims to provide an environment that is comfortable and respectful of all students and their choices regarding sex and their sexuality. Understanding and applying this policy to the behavior and behavioral expectations of all members of the community helps to ensure Post’s goal of being a safe, open community regarding sexuality. Failure to comply with this policy may result in a complaint of sexual misconduct.
