Title IX

Title IX states: 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 education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.

Title IX applies to all members of the College community including faculty, staff, and students. It prohibits all forms of sex or gender-based discrimination in any education program or activity that receives federal funding and applies to all educational programs and activities occurring on and off-campus. For more detailed information, please refer to the Know Your IX website.

ACPHS has designated Title IX Coordinator Wendy Neifeld Wheeler, Ph.D., to coordinate the College’s efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under Title IX. Please contact her with any inquiries or complaints concerning the application of Title IX or refer to the resources at the bottom and side of this page.

For detailed information about how ACPHS will address reports of sex or gender-based misconduct - including Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment, Relationship Violence, Stalking and Misconduct Policies & Procedures for Student and Employees - please refer to the documents located on the sidebar of this page.
