Title IX Compliance

Title IX Compliance

Title IX (1972) aims to eliminate gender bias in educational environments. The 2013 reauthorization of Title IX expands the definitions of gender bias to include sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic violence, and stalking, and it expands the expectation of colleges and universities in handling gender bias incidents. Along with the Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and the Campus SAVE Act, Title IX is in place to ensure a safe and healthy learning environment.

Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute (CCC&TI) is dedicated to providing an educational and work environment that is free from gender bias, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, domestic and dating violence. As part of CCC&TI’s Title IX compliance efforts, all employees of the college are mandated to report any known or suspected violations of Title IX to the Title IX Coordinator or to a Title IX Deputy.
