WPI’s approach to preventing sexual misconduct is comprehensive and progressive. All members of the WPI community are protected by federal and state laws that prohibit discrimination based on sex, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, and transgender status.
WPI is committed to providing a learning, living, and working environment free from gender-based discrimination. It expresses the community's expectations in the Sexual Misconduct Policy and Title IX Policy.
WPI’s Sexual Misconduct Policy and Title IX Policy reflect compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Massachusetts state law and other federal laws. Prohibited sexual misconduct includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and gender-motivated stalking, relationship abuse, and retaliation.
