Sexual Misconduct & Civil Rights (Title IX)

The Bay Path University community welcomes and affirms the rights of its students, faculty and staff to live, work and study in an environment free of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") prohibits discrimination based on sex in the education programs and activities of an institution which receives federal financial assistance. As a recipient of federal financial assistance, Bay Path University is required to adhere to Title IX requirements.

Title IX protects faculty, staff students against unlawful acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, intimate partner violence, dating violence, bullying (including cyberbullying) and stalking. Taken together, these acts are termed sexual misconduct. The University prohibits retaliation for advocating for a right protected under Title IX.

In the role as the Coordinator, Dr. Testori accepts the responsibility of upholding Bay Path’s Title IX policy and is a confidential resource to those who may wish to discuss an incident but may not be ready to file a formal report.
