Appalachian State University values fostering a campus community that is safe and promotes the well-being of all individuals. Gender discrimination, sexual violence, and relationship violence are counter to our values institutionally.

Appalachian has policies and processes available to all Mountaineers, guests, and visitors to ensure every person is provided support, information, and resources to address any misconduct, redress its effects, and prevent its recurrence.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.
