Sexual Violence Information & Prevention
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities receiving federal funding (34 C.F.R. Part 106). Title IX protects against all forms of sex discrimination including but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual violence, discrimination based on gender identity, pregnancy and parental status. Complementing Title IX, the Campus SaVE act addresses sexual violence on college campuses requiring campuses to also address dating and domestic violence and stalking.
At MCLA, we are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and healthy learning, living, and working environment where all forms of sexual violence, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and retaliation are strictly prohibited. In accordance with Title IX, the Campus SaVE Act, the Jeanne Clery Act and guiding documents issued by the Office of Civil Rights and the White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault, we are taking a proactive stance to educate our community regarding issues of sexual violence, methods of prevention, reporting such incidents, and the resources available to support survivors.
The provisions of Title IX and the Campus SaVE Act are incorporated into MCLA’s Sexual Violence Policy. MCLA has a designated Title IX Coordinator with primary responsibility for Title IX compliance and with whom complaints of sexual harassment, sex discrimination, sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, and gender equity may be filed. To report a complaint of sexual assault or any other crime, members of our community may also contact MCLA Public Safety/Campus Police.
