Heidelberg University does not discriminate or tolerate discrimination on the basis of sex, gender, transgender status, gender identity, or gender expression in its educational, extracurricular, or athletic programs, or in any admission or employment decisions.

As a professor, one of my responsibilities is to help create a safe learning environment on our campus. I also have a mandatory reporting responsibility related to my role as a professor. It is my goal that you feel able to share information related to your life experiences in classroom discussions, in your written work, and in our one-on-one meetings. I will seek to keep information you share private to the greatest extent possible. However, I am required to share with the Title IX coordinator information regarding sexual misconduct or information about an incident that may have occurred while at Heidelberg University. Students may speak to someone confidentially by contacting our non-mandatory reporters: Campus Counselors and Campus Chaplain. Information on confidential resources can be found here: https://www.heidelberg.edu/about/title-ix.
Heidelberg University seeks to provide an environment that is free of bias, discrimination, and harassment. If you have been the victim of harassment, discrimination or sexual misconduct, we encourage you to report this. If you inform me of an issue of harassment, discrimination, or sexual misconduct I will keep the information as private as I can, but I am required to bring it to the attention of the institution’s Title IX Coordinator. If you would like to talk to the Title IX Coordinator (Margaret Rudolph) directly, she can be reached in University Hall, Room 216, by phone at 419-448-2111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
