Stanford Student Title IX Process and Stanford Title IX Administrative Process
The Stanford Student Title IX Process (effective February 2016) (for matters involving a student as a respondent) and Stanford Title IX Administrative Process (for matters not covered by Student Title IX Process) address Stanford University’s responsibilities under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Similarly, the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013, Section 304 requires that universities have procedures in place to respond to matters of sexual assault, relationship (dating) violence and stalking. This policy covers student-related concerns of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, relationship (dating or domestic) violence and stalking (collectively "Prohibited Conduct") involving students, regardless of whether the alleged Prohibited Conduct occurred on or off of campus and regardless of the sex of the parties involved.
Attorneys for Student Title IX Process
The Student Title IX Process entails students going through the Process to nine hours of attorney service paid for by the university. A list of the university-identified attorneys willing to advise the Complainant and Responding Students can be found here.
