Policy and Procedures

Title IX is a federal law that protects students, educators, and school employees against all forms of sex or gender discrimination, including: sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual exploitation, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and retaliation. Marshall does not suggest that any case is more or less important but instead is a reflection of federal regulations that apply only to a specifically-identified set of cases. 


The Marshall BOG Policy sets forth how Marshall will address such issues.

Amnesty Policy from the Marshall BOG GA-1 Policy
Marshall’s highest priority is the physical and mental health, safety, and well-being of individual Students and the campus community. An element of promoting safety is providing clear, responsible methods of reporting and addressing incidents of sexual violence/misconduct.

Therefore, in order to remove potential barriers to reporting sexual violence/misconduct, Marshall may not charge students participating in the Title IX process with violating any Prohibited Conduct or the Student Code of Conduct regarding the personal use of alcohol and/or other drugs if they report such conduct within a Title IX matter.

Recognized Student Organizations may also qualify for amnesty if a member(s) of that organization reports Prohibited Conduct to the Title IX Office in good faith.
