Sexual harassment & Title IX
Federal law prohibits sexual harassment in educational institutions that receive money from the government, including public colleges and other programs or private universities that receive federal funding. As a form of discrimination under Title IX, sexual harassment can occur in various ways, as well as between various parties. This includes:
- Unwanted/unwelcome sexual conduct
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- Requests for sexual favors
- Verbal, non-verbal, and / or physical conduct of a sexual nature
- Sexual harassment between students
- Sexual harassment between faculty and students
While sexual harassment does not include acts of sexual violence or assault, which are separate violations under Title IX, they are still serious matters that receive attention from school administrators and pose risks of serious consequences. This can include:
- Probationary period imposed by the school
- Mandatory completion of sexual education courses

1. Don’t Talk to the Police!
It’s crucial to know that while you should remain respectful with authorities, you have the right to remain silent. This a right protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which makes it clear individuals are protected from being compelled to be a witness against him / herself in criminal matters.
It’s important to note that:
- Talking will not help you avoid an arrest. If law enforcement has probable cause to arrest you, then they will arrest you.
- By speaking, you risk making a confession or providing information that can be used to indict you, even unknowingly.
- Even if you feel that information being discussed is “harmless,” it is still in your best interest to invoke your Fifth Amendment right.
