Title IX - Just Ask
About Just Ask
We at Florida Southern College share a common belief that every individual should be able to work and study in an environment free from discrimination, harassment or intimidation based on race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, age, national origin, mental or physical disability, marital status, medical condition, veteran status, sexual orientation, citizenship or any other characteristic protected under federal or state law or local ordinance.
Discrimination is illegal and in direct conflict with the mission of the College. It exposes the College and the individuals involved to liability under the law. Accordingly, the College prohibits any physical, written, or spoken conduct that violates the prohibitions on harassment set forth above.
This policy refers to all forms of sex discrimination committed by employees, students, or third parties that interfere with FSC academics, athletics, or education, including but not limited to: sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual violence as well as domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.
