What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” The regulations regarding Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 can be found on the Department of Justice website.
Our College's Title IX Team is charged with monitoring compliance with federal, state and institutional policies. This includes helping to maintain a safe and caring campus environment through prevention education and the investigation of complaints of gender-based discrimination and sexual misconduct.
If you have been a victim of gender discrimination or harassment, sexual assault, relationship violence or stalking, it is helpful to reach out to someone that you know and trust. For information, assistance in accessing services, or to make a report, you may contact any one of the following people.
