Huntingdon College Non-Discrimination Statement 

Huntingdon College is committed to a policy against legally impermissible, arbitrary, or unreasonable discriminatory practices. Therefore, Huntingdon College, in accordance with Title IX and Section 106.8 of the 2020 Final Rule under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, other applicable federal and state law, and stated College policy, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex.  Furthermore, Huntingdon College, in accordance with applicable federal and state law and stated College policy, prohibits discrimination on the basis of actual or perceived gender, gender identity, race, color, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion, age and/or national origin in its education program or activity, including admission and employment.

COVID-19 and TITLE IX FAQ’s

Q: How can I report matters of sexual misconduct?

A: Even though Huntingdon has moved to remote classes to complete the spring semester and residential students have moved off campus, individuals can still report concerns using the standard methods.  During this time of the pandemic, the most convenient method would be to use the online reporting form found at https://www.huntingdon.edu/misconduct/.  You may also reach the Title IX Coordinator via email at titleixcoordinator@hawks.huntingdon.edu.

Q:  So, the fact I’m a student now living at home and taking all my classes online doesn’t mean Huntingdon’s Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy no longer applies to me?

A:  That is right.  Students are still subject to Huntingdon’s Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy and are still protected when it comes to unwelcome behavior covered under the policy.  If you feel you are the recipient of such unwelcome behavior, please contact us.

Q: What resources are available for students and employees?

A: Huntingdon will continue to offer appropriate supportive and interim measures and assist individuals in identifying supportive measures in the community where they are located.  Keep in mind that the College’s ability to offer resources on campus or in person may be limited due to changes in college operations as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. You can find a list of available college resources and those in the Montgomery area at https://www.huntingdon.edu/misconduct/.  Contact the Title IX Office if you have questions or are unclear about the resources and remedies available to you.
