II. Committment to Non-Discrimination

Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination that deprives a person of equal treatment. It is prohibited by Title IX, a federal law that 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 subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Sexual harassment is also prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 151B, Massachusetts Fair Education Practices Act, Massachusetts General Laws 151 C, Section 2(g), and other applicable state and federal statutes.

Olin rejects and condemns all forms of harassment, discrimination, retaliation and disrespect, and is committed to sustaining a welcoming environment for every individual. It is the policy of Olin to adhere to all applicable state and federal laws prohibiting discrimination. Olin does not discriminate in admission to, access to, treatment in or employment in its programs and activities on the basis of a person’s race, religion, color, national origin, age, marital or parental status, veteran status, sex, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or any other legally protected status.
