Gender Matters and Title IX

Grievance Procedures

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S. Code § 1681) mandates that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

Sex/gender discrimination violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity. AUM considers sex/gender discrimination in any of its forms to be a serious offense. The Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy was created to address issues of student sex/gender discrimination. The Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy and the Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment refer to all forms of discrimination and harassment committed against students and employees, including but not limited to: unfair treatment based on an individual’s sex/gender, sexual harassment, sexual violence, and sexual misconduct by other students, employees, or third parties.

How to Report an Incident

Reporting an Incident

We understand that making the decision to report an incident can be overwhelming and that you may have a number of questions.

At AUM, we encourage all students to report incidents that violate safety and security on our campus.  Reporting an incident to any AUM employee is considered official notice to the institution, and the Office of Title IX will take immediate action to support students impacted by a Title IX violation.

If a student requests that his or her name not be used, all reasonable steps will be taken to respond and investigate consistent with the request, as long as doing so does not prevent the University from responding effectively and preventing the harassment of other students or the complainant. It’s important to note that keeping the student anonymous or not providing full details regarding an incident does limit the University’s ability to respond.

If a student desires that details of an incident be kept confidential, the student should speak with AUM Student Counseling ServicesAUM Student Health Services, or off-campus rape crisis resources who are able to provide confidential services.
