It is the policy of Delaware Law not to discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race, national origin or ethnicity, religion, disability, status as a veteran of the Vietnam era or other covered veteran, sexual orientation, gender identity, or marital status in its educational programs, admissions policies, employment practices, financial aid, or other school-administered programs or activities. This policy is enforced under various federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as amended by the Civil Rights Act of 1991, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and Americans with Disabilities Act. Further, in compliance with state and federal laws, Delaware Law will provide the following information upon request: (1) copies of documents pertinent to the law school’s accreditations, approvals, or licensing by external agencies or governmental bodies; (2) reports on crime statistics and information on safety policies and procedures; and (3) information regarding gender equity relative to intercollegiate athletic programs.
For information regarding services and resources for disabled students, please contact the Office of the Dean of Students.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on gender in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Such programs include recruitment, admissions, financial aid, scholarships, athletics, course offerings and access, hiring and retention, and benefits and leave. Title IX also protects students and employees from unlawful sexual harassment (including sexual violence) in university programs and activities. In compliance with Title IX, Delaware Law prohibits discrimination and harassment based on sex in employment, as well as in all programs and activities. The university’s Title IX coordinator monitors compliance with Title IX and its accompanying regulations. Individuals with questions or concerns about Title IX or those who wish to file a complaint of noncompliance may contact Widener University’s Title IX coordinator.
The US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the division of the federal government charged with enforcing compliance with Title IX: www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/index.html.
