Title IX and Sexual Misconduct
New England Law | Boston is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment that is free from all forms of sexual misconduct, including sexual assault and sexual harassment, and in which no member of the School community is, on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender (hereinafter understood to include both identity and expression) excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any School program or activity. Gender-based and sexual harassment, including sexual violence, are forms of sex discrimination in that they deny or limit an individual’s ability to participate in or benefit from School programs or activities.
The school is required to designate a Title IX Coordinator, and to make available the School's policies and procedures relative to Title IX Sexual Harassment. These requirements are intended to ensure that New England Law's entire educational community understands how to contact the Title IX Coordinator to report sex discrimination and harassment. The Title IX Coordinator is required to complete Title IX training through the Association of Title IX Administrators (ATIXA), as well as Preventing Harassment & Discrimination training annually through the School's training vendor, EverFi.
Contact the Title IX Coordinator: Jacqui Pilgrim, Assistant Dean, 46 Church St., Boston, TitleIXCoordinator@nesl.edu, 617-422-7400.
The school’s non-discrimination statement, Title IX Coordinator, and complaint procedure can be found in the full Title IX Sexual Harassment Policy.
