Title IX – Sex Discrimination, Harassment and Assault

In compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other federal, state and local laws, Labouré College does not discriminate on the basis of age, color, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or national origin in any phase of its employment process, its admission or financial aid programs, or any aspects of its educational programs or activities. We follow the last that "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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance." 20 U.S.C. § 1681 & 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (1972)

Labouré College is committed to fostering a community that promotes prompt reporting of sexually-related misconduct, harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking in any form, as well as the timely and fair resolution of reported incidences. 

In compliance with Title IX and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the College provides a procedure for reporting, investigating, and adjudicating misconduct.

Matthew Gregory, Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs and Title IX Coordinator

Office: C128. Office Phone: 617-322-3506. Email: matthew_gregory@laboure.edu

This individual has been trained and certified through 2021 by the Association of Title IX Administrators (AtIXa) to receive and respond to allegations of violations of the policy. Reports can be made by those who have been the victim of a violation of this policy, by a third party on the victim's behalf, or anonymously. Their role is to take prompt and effective action to stop the harassment, prevent the recurrence, and remedy the effects to the best of their ability. 

A student or employee has a right to file a criminal complaint and a Title IX complaint simultaneously. 

It is important that students know that the College has determined that all staff and faculty at the College are named "mandated reporters" of any potential Title IX violations. The only exception is those who are protected and serving in their protected status (i.e., members of the clergy acting in a clergy role, mental health professionals acting in their mental health professional capacity). Although potentially requested by the reporting party to keep the details or themselves anonymous/confidential, staff must still report the concern to the Title IX Coordinator. This includes any member of a clinical site or adjunct professor.
