Title IX: Table of Contents  

 

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provides that: "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." 20 U.S.C. § 1681 and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (1972).

Goldey-Beacom College is committed to protecting the rights and dignity of all students, faculty and staff, and seeks to maintain a safe environment that is free from all forms of assault, harassment and discrimination. Any form of sexual misconduct, harassment or discrimination will not be tolerated by the College. Title IX ensures that no one be denied access to their education program or activty on the basis of sex and includes specific prohibitions against sexual harassment.

All complaints or reports of alleged sexual misconduct, gender discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation and other gender-or-sex-based behaviors will be handed by a Title IX  Coordinator to determine if the complaint or report violates either Title IX or the College's institutional prohibitions of conduct on the basis of sex. Every employee of the College who receives a complaint or learns of a possible sexual misconduct must report the incident to a Title IX Coordinator. The College will be prompt, fair and impartial in proceedings to investigate the incident, to take action to eliminate the misconduct, prevent its reoccurrence, and address its effects. In some instances, to protect the safety of the GBC Community, an investigation may still go forward even if the complainant requests that no action be taken. The College respects the victim's privacy but to ensure a complete and fair investigation, some level of disclosure may be necessary.

To report these matters, the student/employee is encouraged to complete the Title IX Complaint Form available on Campus Web. The form is automatically submitted to the Title IX Coordinator and can be submitted anonymously. Emails may also be sent to TitleIXCoordinator@gbc.edu. Students or employees may also directly contact the Title IX Coordinator.
