Student Rights and Responsibilities
Title IX and Power-Based Violence
Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all areas of education programs and activities such as admissions, financial aid, housing, facilities, scholastic, intercollegiate, club and intramural athletics.
Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence and sexual assault, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. SLCC is committed to ensuring all students feel safe and have the opportunity to benefit fully from education programs and activities.
Employee Reporting Obligations:
Students, faculty, and staff are obligated to report incidents and share information about sexual misconduct and harassment, even if the complainant or witness has concerns about underage drinking, drug use or other prohibited activity.
To file a complaint of sexual misconduct, please contact the Title IX Coordinator or complete our online reporting form below.
