Title IX

Palm Beach Atlantic University (“PBA” or the “University”) is deeply committed to creating and sustaining an educational, working, and living environment that is conducive to learning and scholarship and is supportive of students and employees. Part of this commitment is fostering a campus free of Sexual Misconduct in all forms.

Sexual Misconduct Policy

Title IX and Sexual Misconduct

This Policy outlines the University’s community expectations to ensure a campus free from Sexual Misconduct, the steps for recourse for those individuals who have been subject to Sexual Misconduct, and the procedures for determining whether a violation of University policy has occurred.

PBA is a Christian university dedicated to equipping students to grow in wisdom, lead with conviction and serve God boldly. We uphold Biblical principles, including those related to sexual purity. We believe in the divine inspiration of the Bible, that the physical and emotional intimacy of sex is designed beautifully and specifically to unite a couple living in a loving marital, lifelong commitment to each other. While aspects of our policy may reference intimate or sexual activities outside of marriage, this is not an endorsement of such actions. We do not condone any form of sexual misconduct against any individual. PBA is committed to ensuring a safe environment for everyone and will address all instances of sexual misconduct regardless.

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the coordination of the University’s Title IX compliance efforts, including the University’s efforts to end Sexual Misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.
