POLICY ON TITLE IX AND SEX DISCRIMINATION
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. Examples of sex discrimination that are prohibited under Title IX include sexual harassment and sexual violence. Retaliation against anyone who makes a complaint and/or participates in the complaint resolution process is also prohibited under Title IX.
MCC’s Title IX Policy and Complaint Procedure provides an avenue for those who have been the target of or who witness Sex-Based Misconduct to report such Sex-Based Misconduct, without fear of retaliation.
Definitions of Key Terms
This Policy applies to all members of the MCC community—students (regardless of national origin, immigration status, or citizenship status), employees, or anyone currently engaged in the academic processes– with respect to all conduct in admissions, employment, academic, educational, extra-curricular, or other program or activity (collectively, “MCC’s programs and activities”) on campus and off-campus, including MCC programs and activities outside the United States.
Accordingly, MCC may investigate all Title IX Complaints regardless of where the alleged conduct occurs.
In accordance with Title IX, MCC has identified a Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators. The Title IX Coordinator, with the support of Deputy Coordinators, is responsible for implementing and monitoring Title IX compliance on behalf of the College. This includes coordination of training, education, communications and administration of the complaint and grievance procedures for the handling of suspected or alleged violations of Title IX. Questions or additional information regarding Title IX Compliance at Manhattan Christian College may be directed to the Title IX Office.
