Title IX

AUB encourages a diverse student body and workforce and is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in education and employment. Consistent with this commitment and w​ith Lebanese, U.S., and other applicable laws, it is the policy of AUB not to tolerate any kind of discrimination, discriminatory harassment, or sexual harassment misconduct (as described in the policies​) and to provide those who feel they are victims of any kind of discriminatory harassment (including sexual harassment) with mechanisms for seeking redress, as described in the procedures.

Consistent with Title IX of the U.S. Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination in education and interprets sex discrimination as including sexual harassment and sexual violence, AUB maintains an Equity/Title IX Coordinator in the Office of the President. The office is also supported by a network of faculty and staff members including an Advisory Council, Title IX Deputies, and qualified Panel Members for formal investigations. Members of the network are certified by the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA).

Inquiries regarding any kind of discriminatory harassment may be directed to titleix@aub.edu.lb

You also have the right to raise concerns to the U.S.​ Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights that oversees compliance with Title IX.
