Title IX - Know Your Rights

Title IX – Know Your Rights

On May 6, 2020, the United States Department of Education’s  Office of Civil Rights issued amended regulations governing college and university handling of sexual misconduct under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. South Louisiana Community College (SLCC) is committed to providing an equitable, inclusive educational and working environment where sex and gender discrimination and sexual misconduct are not tolerated.  Therefore, we will transition to the LCTCS policy beginning August 14th found here: Policy.

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.

SLCC has adopted policies and procedures to be in compliance with the federal and state requirements related to the Title IX Act, the VAWA Act and the SaVE Act. The college has also adopted a Sexual Misconduct Policy.

If the college is notified of sexual harassment or violence, we will:

  • Take immediate and appropriate steps to investigate the incident
  • Take prompt action to end the harassment and resolve the situation
  • Take appropriate steps to prevent recurrence of future incidents

To file a complaint of sexual harrassment, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.

Students are strongly encouraged 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. 

Retaliation is prohibited against any student or employee who files a complaint of discrimination or participates in proceedings or an investigation. Retaliatory words, actions or behavior that punish or threaten to punish any student or employee under this policy is strictly prohibited and may result in disciplinary action.

Retaliation should be promptly reported to the Title IX Coordinator.

For Employees
