Title IX – Prohibits Sexual Harassment and Discrimination on Basis of Gender
UCC is committed to diversity and equal employment/education opportunity. We comply with Title IX. This is a federal civil rights law. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally-financed education programs.
UCC protects and supports the 1972 Educational Amendments of Title IX. We work to:
- Promote equity in academic and athletic programs.
- Prevent hostile environments on the basis of sex.
- Prohibit sexual harassment and sexual violence.
- Protect from retaliation and remedy the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.
- Investigate and notify the college community of serious or ongoing threats. We work to prevent a recurrence.
