Non-Discrimination Notice

Bridgewater College does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion or age in the administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic programs, or other college programs and activities, or with regard to employment.

The following are examples of sex-based discrimination prohibited by Title IX:

  1. Sexual harassment, including sexual assault, occurring in connection with any academic, athletic, extracurricular, or other College program, regardless of the location;
  2. Discriminatory decision-making by a supervisor of an employee based on the employee's sex;
