Pregnant and Parenting Students
Eastern Kentucky University is committed to creating and maintaining a community where all individuals enjoy freedom from discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of sex, as mandated by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX). Title IX states that institutions cannot discriminate against students who are pregnant, give birth, experience a false pregnancy, termination of pregnancy, miscarriage or recovery therefrom.
In compliance with Title IX, EKU faculty and Title IX Coordinator pledge to collaborate on a case-by-case basis with all students facing pregnancy and parenting issues. We also pledge to provide strategies that support the academic freedom of faculty and the academic integrity of the learning environment.
Please use the Pregnancy Adjustment Request Form to request assistance as a result of a pregnancy/parenting related situation. As a result of your report, we will reach out to you to provide information on Title IX.
Please contact Carlin Conway if you have any questions.
