EVMS Policy on Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment and Policy on Resolution of Allegations of Sexual Harassment  

In accordance with EVMS policies and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, EVMS does not discriminate on the basis of sex and is committed to providing its educational programs and activities in an environment that is free from both sex discrimination and sexual harassment. 

 Discrimination on the basis of sex and/or sexual harassment (including sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking) are strictly prohibited by the EVMS Non Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy (the Non-Discrimination Policy).    The Non-Discrimination Policy applies to all members of the EVMS community, including employed and community faculty, residents, staff employees, students, vendors or visitors and applies to all EVMS sponsored activities and programs, whether on or off the EVMS campus and regardless of sex, gender identity or gender expression.

Any student or applicant for admission, employee or applicant for employment, or any other member of the EVMS community, whether guest or otherwise, who believes that they have been discriminated against on the basis of sex or the subject of sexual harassment or sexual violence (whether or not such violence is reported to law enforcement) may, in addition to seeking redress through any other available avenues, file a report or complaint with the EVMS Institutional Title IX Coordinator or a Senior Deputy Coordinator as indicated below:
