Internships provide an excellent opportunity for students to gain work experience and make connections with professionals in their field prior to graduating. However, sometimes incidents occur, mishaps take place, or negative situations arise that are not conducive to a safe and supportive learning environment. This can come in the form of accidents, verbal and physical assaults, and inappropriate behaviors.
Whether a student intern, a mentor, or a bystander, this page is dedicated to helping individuals maneuver through those concerns and report internship problems to the proper authorities. In addition to reporting internship problems via the appropriate channels listed, we highly recommend also informing your internship site coordinator, instructor, advisor, and/or faculty member.

Why/When to Contact Title IX
What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (amending the Higher Education Act of 1965) is a federal gender equity law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal funding. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence and other forms of nonconsensual sexual misconduct, is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited under this law.
Clemson University is committed to providing a higher education environment that is free from sexual discrimination. Therefore, if you believe you or someone else that is part of the Clemson University community has been discriminated against based on sex, or if you have questions about Title IX, please contact the Title IX Coordinator Alesia Smith who is also the Executive Director of Equity Compliance, at 223 Holtzendorff Hall, 864-656-3181.
