Title IX Compliance

The College is fully committed to providing a learning and work environment that is free from prohibited discrimination. The College does not practice or condone discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, disability, genetic information, age, political affiliation or veterans’ status in the administration of or in any of its educational programs, activities or employment practices.

The College strives to make its campuses inclusive, safe and a welcoming learning environment for all members of the College community, visitors, and guests. Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in any federally funded education program or activity. Under Title IX, the College prohibits discrimination in all of its activities, services and programs based on sexual misconduct, gender, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

The College will process all Title IX complaints regardless of where the conduct occurred to determine whether the conduct occurred in the context of its educational programs, or had continuing effects on campus or in an off-campus program/activity. The College’s policies and procedures that cover Title IX apply to all complaints carried out by employees, students, and third-parties.

All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. The College has zero tolerance for discrimination, harassment.
