Violations of Title IX Are Not Fine! Please Report It!
Pursuant to the College’s Policy 7.17: Sexual Violence in Accordance with Title IX, VAWA and the Campus SaVE Act, the Title IX policy is to comply with the provisions of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. Sec. 1681, et. seq., which provides that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participating in, be denied the benefits of or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal funds, and to further comply with the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (“VAWA”) and its attendant Campus SaVE Act provisions (“Campus SaVE”).
The Title IX policy will establish a procedure for recourse, resolution, and rehabilitation of all complainants of all forms of sexual misconduct, while protecting the due process rights of alleged perpetrators of sexual violence, and for resolving any and all such cases in a prompt and equitable manner.
Title IX applies to all applicants, students, and employees which requires schools to take steps to prevent and remedy two forms of harassment: 1) Sexual Harassment and 2) Gender-Based Harassment. If you or someone you know have been discriminated against or harassed while on any of the College’s campuses, please take a moment to report the incident. Once a report is received, it will be reviewed and assigned a Title IX Investigator for further investigation. Anonymous reporting is allowed under Title IX, however, please note that anonymously submitted reports may limit the College’s effectiveness when investigating the Complaint
