As the end of this unprecedented year draws near, the Office of Title IX and Compliance
would like to take this opportunity to remind all employees of Fairmont State University’s
policies regarding discrimination and retaliation. Fairmont State University is committed
to upholding all statutes that prohibit discrimination in education, including Title
VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments
of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities
Act of 1990 and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008.
Per Fairmont State University Board of Governors Policy GA-01, employees are prohibited
from retaliating against anyone who has made a report or complaint of discrimination,
participated in an investigation, proceeding, or hearing concerning a claim of discrimination,
or who refused to participate in any manner in an investigation. Retaliation means
to intimidate, threaten, coerce, or discriminate against any individual for the purpose
of interfering with any right or privilege at the University.
For more information, please review Policy GA-01. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to Jessica Kropog
Furgason, Title IX Coordinator and Compliance Specialist, at Jessica.Kropog@fairmontstate.edu or (304) 367-4689.
