What is Title IX?
The U. S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.
Sex discrimination is prohibited by GBCC policy and federal law in educational programs, activities and employment receiving financial assistance. The GBCC policy applies to all students, volunteers and visitors at the college and prohibits sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and other forms of sex discrimination.
Student, Employees, Volunteers & Visitors
Students, employees, volunteers and visitors of the college who have experienced any form of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct are encouraged to report the incident to the Title IX Coordinator. Support is also available from campus security, advisers, or any trusted GBCC employee.
