Concerns about bias and discrimination

Where can I go if I have a complaint about bias discrimination?

We are committed to ensuring that all students feel supported and welcome on campus.

Belmont University values and celebrates the diverse backgrounds, cultures, experiences and perspectives of our community members. By encouraging and celebrating these differences, we create an environment that promotes freedom of thought and academic excellence. Belmont University denounces harassment and/or discrimination. Such conduct creates a hostile educational, living, and working environment and such acts are not tolerated in our academic community.

Harassment and/or Discrimination refers to language, symbols, behaviors and acts that demonstrate discrimination or hate against persons or groups because of one or more of the following identity categories (perceived or otherwise): race, ethnicity, faith tradition, national origin, gender, gender expression/identity, sexual orientation, age/generation, socio-economic status and disability. These categories are examples and are not an exhaustive list of attributes or characteristics protected under this policy.

In this context, Harassment and/or Discrimination refers to the formal reporting of  speech/rhetoric, violence, symbols or actions that have a discriminatory or bias connotation. Students, faculty or staff that have witnessed or have experienced behavior that falls within this definition and wish to report it to the Belmont University administration are asked to complete this form.

Belmont University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination based on sex and provides a number of resources and services to assist students, faculty and staff in addressing issues involving sex discrimination, including sexual violence.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

Victims of sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and relationship violence are encouraged to seek support and report the incident.
