Westminster College strives to create and maintain an environment in which people are treated with dignity, courtesy, and respect; where there is freedom of inquiry and expression, and the absence of intimidation, oppression and exploitation; and where people are able to work and learn in a safe environment. Westminster College students, staff, faculty, as well as guests and visitors, have the right to be free from acts of discrimination, harassment, or sexual violence. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Therefore, the college will not tolerate unlawful discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct of any kind. When an allegation of wrongdoing pursuant to our policy is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, and a respondent is found to have committed a violation, serious steps will be taken to provide recourse for those individuals whose rights have been violated and to reasonably prevent repeated occurrences.

Take the Title IX Survey
There is now an easy opportunity for you to play a huge role in addressing sexual and interpersonal violence on campus.
Take part in the Title IX Campus Climate Survey, available online to current Westminster students. By participating in this survey, you will provide critical insights to help protect and support Westminster students. You will have a chance to give feedback on issues such as Title IX training and the College’s response to sexual assault and to share information about any sexual or interpersonal violence you may have experienced or witnessed. The survey is voluntary, and your answers will be aggregated, kept secure, and not associated with you personally.
The more students who participate, the more we will learn that can help us take on this issue in a meaningful way and improve our training and programs already in place. Your response really will make a difference.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jason Schwartz-Johnson at email@example.com.
Thank you for speaking out —and for encouraging your friends to do the same!
