Title IX

Dear Students & Prospective Students:

I am writing about an important matter and hope you will review this carefully.

We each play a critical role in preventing and responding to harassment and violence, including but not limited to sexual harassment and violence. The faculty and staff of William Peace University are committed to building and preserving a community in which everyone can work and study together, free from all forms of exploitation, intimidation, discrimination, harassment, and violence.

The University does not tolerate any form of sexual discrimination; such behavior is prohibited by law and by William Peace University. We believe that education is the most effective way to create a healthy, respectful learning environment, and that is why we are offering you this important and valuable interactive training program.

I encourage you to view, as well as download, the Title IX document on this page. Thank you for taking the time to become informed about these important issues.

Dr. Brian C. Ralph
President, William Peace University
