Dear FIT students,
Although this message is intended for you, I also want to remind the entire Florida Tech community about Title IX and the University’s commitment to providing a safe and healthy learning experience and campus environment.
Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act 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 subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Here’s what you need to know about Title IX:
The administration, faculty, and staff of Florida Tech work together to achieve a safe campus through educational programs and campaigns, policy development and enforcement, promoting healthy social norms, and involving multiple stakeholders in prevention efforts.
Thank you for choosing to complete your education at the Florida Institute of Technology. Be assured that we are committed to fostering a campus culture that is safe and supportive of all of our students, administrators, faculty and staff.
