Harassment/Title IX

Ripon College Policy Prohibiting Harassment Including Sexual Harassment

It is the policy of Ripon College, consistent with its efforts to foster an environment of respect for the dignity and worth of all members of the College community, that all varieties of harassment and intimidation – sexual and nonsexual, physical and non-physical, verbal and non-verbal – of employees and students of Ripon College are unacceptable and impermissible conduct which will not be tolerated.

Harassment includes behavior, speech, or writing that demeans or stereotypes individuals in a harmful way. Harassment may create an intimidating, hostile or demeaning environment and often has the effect of interfering with an individual’s full and free participation in the life of the College.

When harassing misconduct occurs or if there may be cause for concern, students should notify or consult residence hall staff, counselors, Chris Ogle as Dean of Students, the police department, Julie Johnson as the Athletic Director and/or Michele A.
