Title IX and Student Complaints
Title IX & Student Complaints
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.
Title IX states that: 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.
Individuals wishing to report reporting sexual harassment, sexual violence, and sexual misconduct and/or to make inquiries concerning the application of Title IX at the College may contact:
