Title IX - Know Your Rights

TITLE IX – KNOW YOUR RIGHTS

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

Our designated Confidential Advisor is available to help. Confidential Advisors are designated individuals who have been trained to aid a person involved in a sexual misconduct complaint in the resolution process as a confidential resource.
