Berea College prohibits all forms of sexual discrimination, including sexual misconduct. We are committed to addressing sexual misconduct in a manner consistent with our institutional values and with applicable law. We are also committed to raising awareness of issues relating to sexual assault and its prevention, providing training and continuing education for students, staff, and faculty, and providing adequate support and resources for those impacted by sexual misconduct.
Our Title IX team and many on and off-campus partners are privileged to address sexual assault and to create a community that values all people of the earth.
Title IX protects the rights of pregnant and parenting students to a discrimination-free education. Here are a few important things to know about these rights:
All Schools Must
- Allow you to continue participating in work, classes, and extracurricular activities. Schools may not require pregnant students to provide a doctor’s note unless they require a doctor’s note from all students who have a physical or emotional condition.
- Offer alternative programs or classes for pregnant students. Students may choose to participate in such programs, but schools cannot pressure them to do so.
- Provide reasonable adjustments such as a larger desk and elevator access.
- Excuse absences due to pregnancy or childbirth as long as it is deemed necessary by the physician.
If you are a pregnant or parenting Berea College student and have experienced discrimination, or feel you need additional support to continue your education, contact the Title IX Coordinator for assistance.
