Title IX (1972)

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial aid.” (Section 1681.Sex)

It is the policy of Three Rivers College and its Board of Trustees that each student and employee attends and works in a hostile-free environment at the College. The College shall respond to the following types of sexual harassment allegations considered to create a hostile environment according to the Federal Title IX Legislation:

  1. Quid Pro Quo—School employee conditioning education benefits on participation in an educational program or work-related activity in unwelcome sexual conduct; or
  2. Unwelcome conduct that a reasonable person would determine is so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the school’s education program or activity; or
  3. “Sexual assualt,” “dating voilence,” “domestic violence,” or “stalking” as defined in Federal Law under the Clery Act and Violence Against Woment Act (VAWA).
