Title IX: Gender-Based Harassment and Discrimination Policy

The Gender-Based Harassment and Discrimination Policy outlines all gender- and sex-based misconduct at Bentley University, as defined and supported by the United States Department of Education. This policy provides an overview of important definitions, methods of reporting an incident, and prohibited conduct on campus, as well as two different adjudication processes through which alleged violations will be processed: The Title IX Adjudication Process and the Gender-Based Harassment & Discrimination Adjudication Process. Please note that this policy and the accompanying appendices supplement the 2020-2021 Student Handbook, and all Bentley students are expected to review these documents.
