Northern Kentucky University does not discriminate based on origin, race, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, political affiliation, physical or mental disability, genetic information, pregnancy, and Uniform Services or veteran status in its educational programs and activities, employment, daily operations and admissions policies, in accordance with all applicable federal, state local laws and university policies.

Educational institutions that receive federal financial assistance are covered by Title IX. If only one of the institution's programs or activities receives federal funding, all of the programs within the institution must comply with Title IX regulations. In compliance with Title IX, Northern Kentucky University prohibits discrimination in employment as well as in all programs and activities on the basis of sex.
Title IX protections also apply to pregnant and parenting students. If you are pregnant and need support or have questions about how to continue your education here at NKU, please contact the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator to discuss your options.
If you are a student who believes you have been or are the victim of sexual harassment, including sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking or other sexual misconduct, you may report such conduct or file a complaint under Title IX with the Deputy Title IX Coordinator in the Office of Student Conduct, Rights, and Advocacy at 859-572-5147 and/or the University Police at 859-572-7777.
Whether you choose to file a report, you should seek out support. There are two designated spaces on campus where you can speak confidentially:
Norse Violence Prevention Center
Student Union 304
Health, Counseling & Student Wellness
University Center 440
