St. 爱德华大学修订了其校规 第九条政策和程序 in August of 2020, as well as again in August of 2021, as instructed by the Department of Education. These revisions provide for live hearings to decide allegations of 性ual misconduct, and those live hearings can also be conducted virtually using technology. This new procedure was the result of new 第九条 regulations that were issued by the U.S. 2020年5月的教育部.  我们遵守所有的要求, but t在这里 is some latitude for how universities interpret the new rules, 以及它们是如何实现的.  重要的是, we will provide a number of procedural protections that are important to all members of the community. 

While the new regulations mean many changes for the policies and procedures, what hasn’t changed is our dedication to a process that respects the dignity of all members of the university community. We respect the right of someone who experiences 性ual misconduct to process it in the way that is best for them and their healing process. We respect their right to choose to bring a report forward for a university formal resolution, or to seek a response from the university that is primarily centered on supportive measures and resources available from St. 爱德华家或更大的社区. 公平的程序是优先考虑的, as is repairing harm and facilitating healing and safety for all members of the community irrespective of race, 性, 性别认同/表达式, 年龄, 能力, 宗教, 社会经济地位, or the other qualities/identities that we value within a diverse community.

Additional resources can be found on our 第九条 webp年龄, including updated 语言教学大纲 对教职员工和 强制性记者政策.   

The university expects everyone within our community — students, faculty and staff — to treat others equally and does not tolerate hostile behavior toward others.

我们认识到性别和性别歧视, 还有性骚扰和暴力, 是我们社会的关键问题吗, and we consider it our responsibility to attend to these concerns within our community. 作为我们社区的一员,你应该期待圣. 365比分网电竞 to not only comply with federal and 状态 regulations as they apply to 第九条 and 状态 laws, but also to remain aligned with our Holy Cross values of community, 多样性, 社会公正与服务.

Our goal is to assist those affected by 性 and gender discrimination, harassment and violence. 你是否是幸存者, 被告:这种事件的被告或旁观者, we as a community are 在这里 to guide you through the process of resolution. We strive to be sensitive to the unique needs of different populations within our community.

了解情况是找到解决办法的重要一步, 要么为你自己, 我的一个朋友, 或者我们社区的其他人. 通过同理心和同情心, we may more readily address concerns of discrimination and violence surrounding 性 and gender. 感谢你迈出了为他人服务的一步. Together, we can bring about a better time for our community.
