Title IX and Clery Act

Title IX

RUSH is committed to the principles of equal opportunity and promoting and maintaining an environment free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment. To that end, RUSH has two policies addressing harassment in its work and learning environment: The Prohibition against Sexual Harassment in RUSH Programs and Activities, and the Prohibition against Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct. RUSH University complies with Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulations, as well as the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA), and the Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act, all which prohibit sexual harassment occurring within RUSH's education programs or activities. 

RUSH University has a duty to address and properly investigate all allegations of sexual harassment occurring within the context of its education programs or activities, as well as a duty to prevent sexual harassment through mandatory training and education to students, faculty, and staff.  


All reports about conduct that may violate RUSH's Prohibition against Sexual Harassment in RUSH Programs and Activities or RUSH's Prohibition against Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct should be filed with RUSH's Title IX Coordinator, Nancee Hofheimer.

Reports can also be made electronically and/or anonymously through the RUSH Hotline at (877) 787-4009 or via EthicsPoint, the RUSH online reporting tool.

Title IX Coordinator: Nancee Hofheimer, JD

Clery Act

In 1990, the United States Congress passed the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act (“Clery Act”) that requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information regarding crime on and near their campuses. The purpose of the act is to provide students, faculty, and staff with information that assists them to make informed decisions about their own safety and the safety of others. Find more information about the RUSH Security Team.

RUSH University is committed it to safety and security across all its campuses and is compliant with the Clery Act. Annually in October of each year, a report consisting of crime statistics for the previous year is disclosed to the university community. In full transparency, RUSH University issues an email notification to all enrolled students, faculty, and staff providing a link to access the Clery report. Prospective students and employees are also notified of the report's availability. 

The RUSH Clery report includes information on:

  • The university’s security arrangements
  • Policies and procedures
  • Programs that provide education on such topics as drug/alcohol abuse, awareness of various kinds of sex offenses, and the prevention of crime
  • Procedures the university will take to notify the campus community in the event of an emergency
