Stevens is committed to the principle of equality of opportunity in employment and education. It is the policy of the university not to discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, creed, national origin, religion, or disability in its programs and activities. A comprehensive list of non-discrimination categories is included at the end of this letter.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sex discrimination under Title IX includes sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual violence by employees, students or third parties.
In support of the safety and well-being of members of the Stevens community and in compliance with Title IX, the following Title IX Coordinators have been designated to respond to inquiries concerning sex discrimination including sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual violence:
Assistant Vice President for Student Development and Title IX Coordinator
10th Floor Howe Center
Vice President for Human Resources and Deputy Title IX Coordinator
7th Floor Howe Center
Mr. Stahley will have ultimate oversight responsibility for Title IX matters at Stevens. He will be the primary person responsible for overseeing reports and complaints relating to students. Mr. Samolewicz will have secondary responsibility for Title IX matters generally and he will have primary responsibility for overseeing reports and complaints relating to employees (including faculty) at Stevens. If you are unsure as to which person to contact based upon the facts involved in a particular situation, please feel free to contact either Mr. Stahley or Mr. Samolewicz to discuss the situation.
Questions and inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be referred to either of the Title IX Coordinators named above or to the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department (http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/index.html).
Stevens encourages anyone who has experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual violence to promptly report these offenses. Stevens also encourages anyone who has reason to know that sexual harassment, sexual assault or sexual violence has occurred to make a report. Victims or others with knowledge can make a report to either of the Title IX Coordinators or to Campus Police. Campus Police can be reached at 201.216.5105 or at the Gate House. Reports will be handled in accordance with Stevens’ grievance policies.
We are fortunate at Stevens to have a caring and committed community, but the realities of our society instruct us that sexual harassment and violence can occur anywhere. As members of the Stevens community, we are all responsible for ensuring that discrimination, of any kind, is not tolerated.
Non Discrimination categories include race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, disability, atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, military service, and veteran status, and any other category protected by law.
