Title IX Policy

Utah State University believes in fostering respect and dignity for all members of the USU community and addresses sexual misconduct and discrimination in all its forms. USU enforces Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Under the law, sex-based discrimination includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence, and sex-based stalking. These behaviors are prohibited at USU and are collectively called “sexual misconduct” in interim USU policies 339, 339A, and 339B.

Students participating in out of classroom learning experiences (internships, practicums, student teaching, field work, etc.) have the right to an environment free from sexual misconduct and discrimination. USU takes its Title IX obligations seriously and works to foster a safe and welcoming environment free of sexual misconduct. To learn more about Title IX and out of classroom learning experiences, please visit the Office of Equity’s website at https://www.usu.edu/equity/sexual-misconduct/Title-IX-out-classroom.

To report sexual misconduct to USU, visit equity.usu.edu/report or contact USU’s Title IX Coordinator Hilary Renshaw at 435-797-1266, titleix@usu.edu, or in Old Main room 161 on the USU Logan campus.
