MCLA Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities receiving federal funding. Title IX requirements apply to all aspects of education programs and activities at MCLA including student admissions, financial aid, academic offerings, and athletics. Title IX also applies to faculty and staff.

MCLA is obligated to:

  • Designate a Title IX Coordinator to oversee compliance efforts
  • Ensure all programs and activities are in compliance with Title IX
  • Establish procedures to resolve student and employee Title IX complaints
  • Provide notification to the campus community that sex discrimination is prohibited within our programs
  • Ensure the campus community receives ongoing education regarding Title IX

Responsibilities of the Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for ensuring compliance with Title IX. The responsibilities involve developing, implementing, and monitoring efforts to comply with Title IX. The Title IX Coordinator monitors the application of MCLA policy and Title IX in complaint procedures including notification, investigation, and disposition of complaints; ensuring a fair and neutral process for all parties; creation of educational materials and training for the campus community; and monitoring all other aspects of Title IX compliance.

Reports under Title IX

Under Title IX, MCLA is required to prevent and address discrimination on the basis of sex including sexual harassment, sexual assault, and retaliation for filing a complaint. The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for supervising investigations of potential sex discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual assault. Accordingly, reports of sex discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual assault should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator.

Students

Reports alleging sexual discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual assault should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. Reports may also be made to MCLA Campus Police/Public Safety or any Responsible Employee at MCLA. A Responsible Employee is an individual who has the authority to redress sexual discrimination or who a student reasonably believes has this authority. Responsible Employees are required to report any information they receive about an alleged Title IX violation to the Title IX Coordinator.

Employees

MCLA employees alleging sexual discrimination, gender discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual assault should direct them to the Title IX Coordinator or MCLA Campus Police/Public Safety.

 

If you have any questions regarding your rights, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
