Preventing sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault at Manhattan School of Music
What is the purpose of the MSM Title IX Grievance Policy?
Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 prohibits any person in the United States from being discriminated against on the basis of sex in seeking access to any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The U.S. Department of Education, which enforces Title IX, has long defined the meaning of Title IX’s prohibition on sex discrimination broadly to include various forms of sexual harassment and sexual violence that interfere with a student’s ability to equally access our educational programs and opportunities.
On May 19, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued a Final Rule under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 that:
See, 85 Fed. Reg. 30026 (May 19, 2020). The full text of the Final Rule and its extensive Preamble are available here: http://bit.ly/TitleIXReg
Based on the Final Rule, Manhattan School of Music will implement the following Title IX Grievance Policy, effective August 14, 2020 and applicable to conduct that occurs on or after August 14, 2020 and is the subject of a formal complaint of sexual harassment brought on or after August 14, 2020.
Carol Matos is MSM’s Title IX Coordinator. She also serves as MSM’s Vice President for Administration and Human Relations.
