Title IX is a federal civil rights law, which is intended in part to prevent and address campus sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct can encompass various forms, be it sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual violence. At all colleges and universities where Title IX would apply in Rhode Island, which is almost all of them as is universally the case across the United States just because of the nature of Title IX, if a party is found responsible for a Title IX charge or violation, a party has a right to appeal both the finding and the sanction.
