Access, Equity & Title IX is committed to addressing all incidents of  discrimionation based on sex, power-based interpersonal violence, remedying the effects on individuals who have been harmed, and providing an equitable process for all participants. We believe that sexual misconduct is a form of power-based interpersonal violence that violates the dignity of a person and interferes with an individual's right to equal access and full participation in the Lake Forest College community. Equal access and full participation as a member of the Lake Forest College community is critical to individual success and to the College’s vision as an intellectual and creative community in which teaching, learning, scholarship, and creative work are accomplished at the highest levels.

To ensure compliance with Federal and State law we rely on the participation of the entire LFC community, including but not limited to, Human Resources, Deans, Academics, and Student Affairs, and students.
