Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities that receive Federal funds. It states:


"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."20 U.S.C. ch. 38 § 1681 et seq.


Eureka College is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect in an environment free of sexual misconduct and discrimination. Sexual discrimination violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity. Eureka College considers sexual discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense.


New Title IX Regulations:

The U.S. Department of Education issued the new regulations on May 6, 2020, with the requirement that they be implemented on Aug. 14, 2020.


Following the Department of Education's publication of final regulations under Title IX, Monmouth College has updated Anti-Harassment/Discrimination Policy as of August 14, 2020.


Eureka College will continue to provide confidential advisors, supportive measures, and resources to all parties involved in harassment and discrimination complaints.


The federal regulations will change the process of investigative procedures for our students and employees, so we will be providing additional education and training to help parties in a complaint navigate the process.

We will continue to update this page with any changes that may impact the policy or process.

Please remember that our commitment to ending discrimination and harassment on our campus remains.


For more information regarding the new federal regulations, please check below:



Persons who wish to report any form of sex discrimination may contact the College’s Title IX Coordinator. The Title IX Coordinator can assist with all aspects of the reporting procedure and will conduct an investigation into a complaint. Employees of the College can also make an initial report to their immediate supervisor who must report it to the Title IX Coordinator.


Employees who believe they have either witnessed or been subjected to unlawful sex discrimination may notify one of the following: their supervisor, the Director of Human Resources, or the Title IX Coordinator. Employees may report to any one of these individuals. If for any reason the employee is unable or unwilling to report the matter to any one of the individuals listed above, he/she may report the matter to the President of the College.
