Commitment to Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sexual harassment and sex discrimination in educational programs and activities. Students, staff, and faculty have the right to pursue education — including in-classroom and work environments, athletic programs, scholarships, and other activities — free from sex-based discrimination including sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence.

NWCCD has a comprehensive policy and resolution procedure to respond to complaints of sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment.
