Title IX Jurisdiction

Where & When Title IX Applies 


When all of the following circumstances are met, the Title IX Resolution Procedures will be applied:

  1. A formal complaint has been filed by an affected individual/student (or parent on behalf of a student under 18) indicating they have experienced one or more forms of Title IX Sexual Harassment and requesting that NSU investigate the incident. The Title IX Coordinator may also file a formal complaint if warranted.
  2. At the time of filing the formal complaint, the complainant must have been participating in or attempting to participate in an NSU education program or activity1.
  3. NSU must have had substantial control over the alleged perpetrator (i.e. respondent) and the context where the sexual harassment occurred.
  4. The sexual harassment must have occurred towards a person in the United States.
1. For the purposes of the Title IX Resolution Procedures, “education program or activity” includes locations, events, or circumstances over which NSU exercised substantial control over both the respondent and the context in which the sexual harassment was reported to occur. This includes any building owned or controlled by a student organization officially recognized by NSU.
