Title IX: Sexual Assault & Sexual Violence Resources

Hartford International prohibits discrimination, including discriminatory harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual or gender-based harassment, complicity in any act prohibited by this Policy, retaliating against anyone for reporting a violation of this Policy or participating in any investigation or proceeding under this policy. These forms of prohibited conduct are unlawful and undermine the mission and values of the Hartford International.

All Hartford International employees are required to report sexual harassment to the Title IX coordinator. No paid Hartford International employee can guarantee confidentiality.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects both the complainants from sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence based on sex, and the respondents – who are in the United States – accused of sexual harassment, discrimination, and violence in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Education program or activity includes locations, events, or circumstances over which the Hartford International exercises substantial control over both the respondent and the context in which the sexual harassment occurred. Title IX applies to all of a school’s education programs or activities, whether such programs or activities occur on-campus, off-campus, or virtually. Hartford International may address sexual harassment affecting its students or employees that falls outside Title IX’s jurisdiction in any manner the Hartford International chooses, including providing supportive measures or pursuing discipline. This policy does not limit principles of academic freedom or freedom of speech even when such speech or expression is offensive, nor does it abridge the Hartford International’s educational mission.

Our Title IX Officer monitors compliance with this law and ensures that complaints of this nature are appropriately and equitably addressed. Any person can report sex discrimination including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the alleged target of the conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, or by email, using the contact information below at any time.  Questions, concerns, and reports of violations can be brought to:
