"No person in the United States, shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX).

Marquette is committed to fostering a learning environment that is safe, conducive to academic success, and supportive of healthy personal development for all members of the campus community. Everyone on Marquette’s campus shares responsibility for maintaining this environment by following university policies and exemplifying respect for others as communicated through our Statement on Human Dignity and Diversity.

In accordance with Title IX, and consistent with Marquette’s commitment to human dignity, any type of sex or gender discrimination will not be tolerated. When an incident of harassment, discrimination or sexual misconduct (occurring on or off campus) is reported to an appropriate Marquette official, the university will respond immediately to stop the discrimination, remedy its effects, and prevent its reoccurrence. Students and employees who retaliate against individuals who report such conduct will be subject to disciplinary action.

Title IX Coordinator

Marquette’s Title IX Coordinator Kristen Kreple is the university official responsible for coordinating Marquette’s efforts to comply with Title IX and all associated regulations, including the investigation of complaints falling under the university’s Title IX Sexual Harassment, Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy. The Title IX coordinator oversees and is supported by four deputy Title IX coordinators.

To file a complaint against a Marquette University student, faculty, staff or visitor for sex discrimination or any form of sexual misconduct including harassment, stalking, or assault, contact the Title IX coordinator or any deputy Title IX coordinators.
