Centenary University is committed to maintaining an academic and workplace environment free from all forms of unlawful sexual, sex-based and gender-based harassment, discrimination, or retaliation.
It is the policy of Centenary University to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual violence) based on sex in the University’s educational programs and activities. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for asserting or otherwise participating in claims of sex discrimination. Centenary University has designated Christine Rosado, Director of Human Resources to serve as the Title IX Coordinator, and George Petersen, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice to serve as the Deputy Title IX Coordinator. Each individual is available to any student, faculty, or member of the staff seeking additional information, support, or wishing to file a complaint related to sexual harassment, discriminatory harassment, dating and domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking. The Director of Human Resources also serves as the Equal Employment Opportunity officer for the University, and is the resource available to anyone seeking additional information or wishing to file a complaint.
The Title IX Coordinator is located in the Human Resources Office in the Seay Administration Building and can be reached at 908-852-1400 x2334. The Deputy Title IX Coordinator is located in Brotherton Hall, Room 220 and can be reached at 908-852-1400 x2386.
Unlawful sexual, sex-based and gender-based harassment, discrimination, or retaliation complaints are processed in accordance with the procedures set forth in this policy.
A person may also file a complaint with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights regarding an alleged violation of Title IX by visiting the U.S. Department of Education’s website or calling 800-421-3481.
