The health, safety, and well-being of all members of the Appalachian School of Law (“School”) community are the School’s primary concerns. In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (the “Clery Act”), as amended by the Violence Against Women Act/Campus Sexual Violence Act (“Campus SaVE Act”), and other applicable state, federal and local laws, the Law School is committed to maintaining a community free from all forms of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct. In accordance with Title IX, the School does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs and activities. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.
Sexual misconduct includes a broad range of behaviors that will not be tolerated in the School’s education programs or activities. The School strictly prohibits sexual harassment and sexual violence, including the offenses of sexual assault, sexual coercion, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Sexual misconduct can occur between strangers, acquaintances, or people who know each other well, including those who are involved in an intimate or sexual relationship, and can be committed by anyone regardless of sex, gender, or gender identity. The School does not tolerate any form of sexual misconduct.
