A Safer Campus for All

Our commitment to our students begins with the desire to see them safe, healthy, and appropriately accommodated. We are pleased to use the Clery Act, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and Title IX as guides to creating a welcoming and safe environment.

The Clery Act

The Clery Act is a consumer protection law focused on providing transparency around campus policies and statistics. With the Clery Act as a guide, we strive to actively foster a safe campus for our students.

Disability Services

We are committed to providing equal access to programs, services, and physical facilities to students with disabilities.  The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability and require IGHSPN to make reasonable accommodations for those otherwise qualified individuals who request accommodations.  A reasonable accommodation is an auxiliary aid or modification that allows an individual to gain equal access and have equal opportunity to participate in curriculum, activities, services, and facilities.  There is no requirement to provide accommodations that impose an undue burden or require a fundamental alteration in the curriculum or any essential elements or functions of training programs.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) afford eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution.

Title IX

Title IX, of the Education Amendments of 1972, is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex - including sexual violence - in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment and acts of sexual violence such as rape, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. 

"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." 20 U.S.C § 1681.
