Sex-Based Discrimination, including Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. Sections 1681 et seq., and its implementing regulations, 34 C.F.R. Part 106, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment of students, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex-based discrimination prohibited by Title IX.
The San Francisco Community College District is committed to creating and maintaining a community free of all forms of unlawful discrimination, including sex-based discrimination (which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.) The District has adopted detailed policies and regulations addressing unlawful discrimination, including sex-based discrimination (which includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.) The District has appointed a specific individual as the Title IX Coordinator, who is responsible for overall coordination of compliance with Title IX, including receiving complaints and conducting investigations. The Title IX Coordinator also works with other individuals who act as “Deputy Coordinators” that play important roles in District compliance with Title IX. Administrative Unit Outcomes: promote awareness of diversity, prevent/remediate discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct.
