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.

In accordance with Title IX, and consistent with Marquette’s commitment to human dignity, no sex or gender discrimination will 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.
