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. This includes protection from sexual harassment. “
The Board of Trustees and the College Administration strongly disapprove of any form of sexual harassment in the workplace or the classroom, including the acts of non-college employees. All college management, supervisory, and faculty personnel have an affirmative responsibility to discourage and eliminate conduct inconsistent with this policy. Specific concerns or complaints regarding sexual harassment should be brought to the attention of the college Title IX Coordinator, Executive Vice President of Human Resources, or Vice President of Student Affairs through the attached procedures for resolving sexual harassment complaints. Disciplinary action will promptly be taken against any employee, student, or otherwise, found to have been engaged in unlawful sexual harassment.
