Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX, as outlined in the U.S. Department of Education’s Dear Colleague Letter, 2011 and the 2020 Final Rule. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against people for making or participating in complaints of sex discrimination, see U.S. Department of Education, Dear Colleague Letter, 2011 and the 2020 Final Rule. For more information about Title IX in general, visit the U.S. Department of Education’s website.
Brunswick Community College encourages individuals to report all gender-based misconduct immediately to the Title IX Coordinator, or another College staff or faculty member. You may make a report to the Coordinators noted below. Brunswick Community College designates two individuals to serve as Title IX Coordinators. One individual handles employee related incidents and the other handles student related incidents. The Title IX Coordinators have the primary responsibility for coordinating efforts related to the intake, investigation, resolution, and implementation of any supportive measures to stop, remediate, and prevent sexual harassment, and retaliation prohibited under this policy.
