Southeast Community College (“SCC” or “the College”) is committed to maintaining a positive and safe learning and working environment. Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination.
SSCC students and employees are responsible for ensuring that the College remains an institution where all people can enjoy the benefits of the College’s educational activities free from sexual harassment. All members of the SCC community, including guests and visitors, are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that ensures a safe environment for all.
Pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972,
“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 . . . .” – 20 U.S.C. § 1681
SCC does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the operation of all educational programs and activities. Under Title IX and 34 C.F.R. § 106.8, the College is prohibited from sex-based discrimination in both admission and employment activities as well.
This policy applies to all SCC students and employees, as well as applicants for admission and employment, and to all educational programs and activities conducted by the College, including admissions and employment. Further, all students and employees, as well as applicants for admission and employment, are protected from sexual harassment at SCC, regardless of whether it was committed by another College student, employee, or a third party. The College may also investigate allegations of sexual harassment, whether they occur on or off-campus.
Inquiries about the application of Title IX and related enforcement provisions and regulations may be referred to SCC’s Title IX Coordinator, the Assistant Secretary of the Office for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education, or both.
