Title IX at Pardee RAND
Pardee RAND is committed to providing an education and employment environment that is free from sex and gender-based discrimination. Consistent with its commitment to addressing sex and gender-based discrimination, Pardee RAND complies with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities, including in admissions and employment.
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity, in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. This includes situations where individuals are harassed; disciplined in a discriminatory manner; excluded from, denied equal access to, or subjected to sex stereotyping in admissions, academic or extracurricular opportunities, employment, and other education programs or activities; denied the benefits of a school’s programs or activities; or otherwise treated differently because of their sex, including their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, is prohibited by Pardee RAND and may result in serious disciplinary action (in the student’s capacity as a student and as a RAND employee), up to and including expulsion from the program and termination of employment. This applies to conduct involving a Pardee RAND student, whether the conduct occurred on or off campus.
Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment.
Reports may be made in person, by email, mail, or telephone using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator, or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the verbal or written report.
Reports may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by email, mail, or by leaving a voicemail message using the Title IX Coordinator’s contact information.
