Title IX

Office of the Title IX Coordinator

Randolph-Macon College is committed to encouraging and sustaining a learning and living community that is free from harassment, violence, and prohibited discrimination. In that regard and consistent with federal law (e.g., Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and the Violence Against Women Act), R-MC has developed the Sexual and Relationship Conduct Policy (“the SRC Policy”). Further, R-MC conducts extensive education and awareness programs with the goal of preventing and discouraging sexual/gender violence and other forms of sexual misconduct.

The SRC Policy prohibits all forms of sexual assault, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking. Collectively, these terms are referred to in this policy as “Prohibited Conduct.”  Prohibited Conduct is more specifically defined in section XIII of the SRC Policy.  

The Sexual and Relationship Conduct Policy serves three principal purposes.

  1. It establishes conduct standards and defines prohibited behavior
  2. It outlines the rights and responsibilities of complainants and    respondents and the process for resolution of reports of alleged  sexual misconduct
  3. It presents resources available to all members of the campus community

The Title IX Coordinator is primarily responsible for oversight of the SRC Policy, Title IX training, and other provisions of federal and state law.  Anyone who is concerned that a violation of the Sexual and Relationship Conduct Policy has occurred is encouraged to contact Jen Thompson, Executive Assistant to the President and Title IX Coordinator on the 1st Floor of Peele Hall (804-752-7211) available also by e-mail at jenniferthompson@rmc.edu.
