Addressing Sexual Misconduct at BYU-Idaho
Title IX Statement
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Prohibited sex discrimination includes (but is not limited to) acts of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, sexual exploitation, indecent exposure, and any other non-consensual sexual contact or behavior (collectively “Sexual Misconduct”).
BYU-Idaho is committed to promoting and maintaining a safe and respectful environment for the campus community. Sexual misconduct is against the law, contrary to the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Honor Code and inconsistent with the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, which we hope are embodied on our campus. The university prohibits sexual misconduct perpetrated by or against university students, university employees, participants in university programs, or visitors to its campus, whether the behavior occurs on or off campus.
