Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence: Prevention and Support

Luther College is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and healthy environment where all members of the community—students, faculty, staff, and visitors—are treated with respect and dignity. Therefore, the college will not tolerate sexual misconduct in any form. Sexual misconduct is not only an act against an individual; it is also an act that affects the entire college community. Acts of sexual harassment, sex offenses, stalking, dating violence, domestic violence, and sexual exploitation are inconsistent with our educational mission.

Nondiscrimination Statement

It is the policy of Luther College to provide equal educational opportunities and equal access to facilities for all qualified persons. The College does not discriminate in employment, educational programs, and activities on the basis of age, color, creed, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal or state law. Sexual harassment and sexual assault are prohibited forms of sex discrimination under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
