Equity and Title IX Program Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Initiatives at AUB

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​AUB is committed to providing a safe, respectful, and inclusive educational and professional environment for students, staff, faculty, Medical Center patients, and visitors. 

AUB policies protect against discrimination based on sex, gender, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion, and other ​protected categories. Sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence, is prohibited both by university policy and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which applies to US federally-funded education. 

The Equity and Title IX Program provides an avenue for members of the AUB community who have experienced discrimination or discriminatory harassment to report and get help. The university maintains an Equity and Title IX coordinator​ based in the Office of the President, and the program is supported by a network of faculty and staff volunteers includng an Advisory CouncilDeputy Title IX Coordinators, and qualified panel members for formal investigations. 

​You also have the right to raise concerns to the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights that oversees compliance with Title IX.
