Sex Discrimination & Sexual Misconduct Title IX

Loma Linda University is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment that is free from unlawful discrimination on the basis of sex in its admissions practices, in its employment practices, or in its educational programs or activities. Any form of sex discrimination and sexual misconduct, including harassment, coercion, intimidation, or sexual violence, is reprehensible; runs counter to LLU’s teachings and guiding beliefs; and will not be tolerated. In keeping with this commitment, Loma Linda University maintains a strict policy prohibiting unlawful discrimination or harassment based on personal characteristics of gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, or veterans’ status. Also prohibited is retaliation of any kind against individuals who report alleged incidents of discrimination or sexual misconduct, or who assist in a University investigation of such allegations.

Any member of the campus community, guest, or visitor who acts to deny, deprive, or limit the educational, employment, residential, or social access, opportunities and/or benefits of any member of the LLU community on the basis of sex is in violation of this policy.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities at institutions receiving federal financial assistance.
