We are committed to providing a safe place for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
The University of Charleston has put into place resources to create a safe, supportive environment for every student, faculty, staff member and visitor to our campus.
Some of these resources are based on Federal Guidelines, some are specific to UC, but we are proudly supportive of having a diverse and welcoming atmosphere in which everyone on our campus feels safe.
Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that specifically states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
