Title IX

Preventing Sexual Assault, Gender Inequality, and Discrimination

Since its founding in 1886 as a women’s college, Winthrop University has placed a top priority on the education and safety of students. The university upholds Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, that 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. 20 U.S.C. §1681. Gender equity for individuals on college campuses is multifaceted and requires diligence in equal programming, opportunity, and personal/bodily autonomy.

As recent studies have suggested, sexual misconduct, harassment, and violence on college campuses is all too common. Preventing injustices wherever possible and holding to high standards of accountability those who abuse others are critical components to providing a safe environment for students to make the most of the college experience. Winthrop provides many services and resources in support of Title IX which may be found on the left panel. There, students, faculty, and staff will find a variety of avenues in order to report Title IX violations, ask questions, or schedule trainings for either themselves, their students, or their office.

Dr. Kimberly Faust, Chief of Staff, serves as Winthrop’s Title IX Coordinator. She is responsible for coordinating the university’s compliance with Title IX, including policy recommendations, overseeing all complaints of sex discrimination, and identifying and addressing any problems that arise during the review of such complaints.
