Title IX

NSU Policy

Policy Statement

Norfolk State University (NSU) is committed to providing an environment that emphasizes the dignity, respect and self-worth of every member of its community. NSU’s Title IX Policy promotes a campus community that is free of any form of interpersonal violence which may include harassment, sexual violence, stalking, child abuse/neglect, dating violence and retaliation.

NSU prohibits discrimination against anyone on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities as required by the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR). Specifically, discrimination based on race, sex, color, national origin, religion, age, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, genetic information, disabilities, or any other status protected by law is prohibited.

This policy seeks to address all incidents of retaliation against individuals who have filed a report, opposed discriminatory practices, have testified, and/or otherwise participated in investigations or proceedings.
