I. Opening Statement and Purpose
Rhodes College is committed to ensuring a safe learning environment that supports the dignity of all members of the Rhodes community. Rhodes does not discriminate on the basis of sex in any of its education or employment programs and activities. Rhodes will not tolerate any form of sexual harassment, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking.
This Title IX Policy (the “Policy”) is intended to ensure that all members of the Rhodes community involved in a Title IX case receive appropriate support and fair treatment, and that allegations of sexual harassment are handled in a prompt, thorough and equitable manner.
All Rhodes’ students and employees are expected to comply with this policy. Rhodes strongly encourages students to report instances of sexual harassment immediately. Employees are required to report such instances, pursuant to Rhodes’ Employee Handbook and Rhodes’ Mandatory Reporter Policy.
Rhodes will review, evaluate, and make any revisions or amendments to this Policy on an ongoing and as-needed basis.
General inquiries about the application of this Policy should be directed to the College’s Title IX Coordinator:
Inez Warner, J.D. Title IX Coordinator
Southwestern Hall, Ste. 303
2000 North Parkway
Memphis, TN 38112
As used throughout this Policy, references to the “Title IX Coordinator” shall include any Deputy Title IX Coordinator and any other person expressly designated by the Title IX Coordinator to act on their behalf.
