Both Title IX and college policy prohibit discrimination in services or benefits offered by the college based upon gender.

Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination and therefore prohibited under Title IX.  Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.

The following are examples of types of conduct that may constitute sexual harassment:

Inappropriate touching, patting, or pinching

Physical assault or coerced sexual activity

Demands or subtle pressure for sexual favors

Obscene phone calls, texts, email, or gestures

Any person (student, faculty, staff, or guest) who believes that discriminatory practices have been engaged in based upon gender may discuss these concerns and file informal or formal complaints of possible violations of Title IX with the Title IX Coordinator.

It is the policy of this college to provide equal employment and educational opportunity on the basis of merit without discrimination because of age, race, ethnicity, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, veterans’ status, or disability.
