Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 requires that all entities that receive federal funds or financial assistance must prohibit sex discrimination in their education programs and activities. Sexual harassment, including sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking, are all forms of prohibited sex discrimination.

Title IX (US Education Amendments of 1972)

Title IX requirements apply to all aspects of education programs and activities at GOCC, including student admission, financial assistance, access to academic offerings, and athletics. The law also applies to all aspects of GOCC’s employment processes, including hiring, tenure, compensation, and training.

GOCC is obligated to:

  1. Provide assurances that all education programs and activities are in compliance with Title IX.
  2. Designate a Title IX Coordinator to oversee compliance efforts.
  3. Establish procedures to resolve student and employee Title IX complaints.
  4. Provide notification to students and employees that sex discrimination is prohibited within its programs.
