Title IX

Piedmont Community College (PCC) is committed to the provision of equal opportunity as required by North Carolina General Statute 115D-77 and by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. Section 1681 et seq (Title IX) and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106. Therefore, PCC will not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education programs, or activities it operates.

 

Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs, activities and employment practices. Therefore, students, employees, applicants and other members of the PCC community (including without limitation, vendors, visitors, and guests) may not be subject to discrimination or harassment or otherwise treated adversely based upon a protected characteristic. This includes, without limitation, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

 

Title IX applies to conduct occurring on campus, during any College program or activity on or off-campus, including academic programs, admissions, recruitment, financial aid, employment, as well as certain off-campus conduct perpetrated or suffered by a PCC student, employee, staff member, or third-party member of the College community.

 

The College encourages individuals to report all gender-based misconduct immediately to the Title IX Coordinator, or another College staff or faculty member. The College will fully and promptly investigate all allegations of gender-based misconduct and will impose disciplinary measures, or take similar actions, as may be appropriate.
