Policy 2.14 - Compliance with Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”  The college does not discriminate on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities, recruitment, admission or employment consideration or selection, whether full-time or part time, under any educational program or activity operated by the college receiving or benefitting from federal financial assistance.

Southeastern Community College is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes respect, responsibility, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and accountability in an environment free of sexual misconduct and discrimination.  The College adheres to the principles and practice of equal employment and educational opportunities.   Accordingly, the College does not practice or condone discrimination in any form, against students, employees, or applicants on the grounds of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, genetic information, age, disability, or political affiliation, or any other legally protected classification.  Sexual discrimination violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity.

Southeastern Community College considers discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense. The College supports the protection available to members of its community under all applicable Federal Laws, including Title VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1991, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Sections 799A and 845 of the Public Health Service Act, the Equal Pay and Age Discrimination Acts, the  rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities ACT of 1990, and Executive Order 11375.
