Reporting Discrimination

Sweet Briar College is dedicated to maintaining an inclusive, nurturing environment that respects individual choice and difference.

Members of the Sweet Briar community may not discriminate against any other person. Actions and words, whether written or spoken, that embarrass, target, or threaten others because of their race, national origin, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, occupation, physical or intellectual ability level, socioeconomic status, or ethnic group hurt all of us.

Any person who feels that he or she has been the subject of any form of discrimination, harassment, sexual violence or bullying by any member of our community—including faculty, staff or another student—may report that in one of the following ways:

  • Any member of the community may contact the Title IX Coordinator, Jodi Canfield, at or 434-381-6730.
  • Faculty and staff may also contact the Office of Human Resources at or 434-381-6140.
  • Students can email, which is administered by the Office of Human Resources.
  • Students may also submit a complaint using the online complaint form. To access the form, students must login to using their email user name and my.sbc password and click on the “Student” tab. The Office of Human Resources administers the complaint procedure and will be available to meet to assist students in filing complaints.

If a member of the Sweet Briar community believes that he or she has been discriminated against, bullied or harassed by the person to whom he or she would report the incident, the report may be made to one of the other listed officials.
