Title IX

In order to foster and maintain a community free from all forms of sexual misconduct, the CIIS administration has created a sexual misconduct policy, which supports the new federal Title IX legislation. We ask that you review this policy, and encourage you to reach out to CIIS's Title IX Officers with any questions.

CIIS encourages anyone who experiences or becomes aware of sex-based harassment and discrimination to immediately contact one of the options listed below including reporting to the University or to law enforcement.
