Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities, admission and employment. Sexual misconduct is a range of prohibited behaviors such as sexual harassment and sexual violence and constitutes sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. As a recipient of federal funds, Northern Virginia Community College is required to comply with Title IX.
Responsible employees must report all alleged violations of the Sexual Misconduct (Title IX) Policy to the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator. A responsible employee is one designated for purposes of initiating notice of a possible violation of the Policy. A responsible employee also is any employee whom a person reasonably believes is a responsible employee. Responsible employees are required to forward all reports of violations of this Policy to the appropriate Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinator. At the College responsible employees include Administrative Council members, Associate Vice Presidents, Deans and Associate/Assistant Deans, Directors, designated Human Resources staff, full-time teaching faculty, business managers, financial aid managers, counselors, coaches, student life staff, and club advisors.
Title IX also prohibits discrimination based on pregnancy and parenting in education programs or activities, including academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs or activities of schools.
Anyone with questions about Title IX may contact the Title IX Coordinator or the Deputy Title IX Coordinator at 703.323.2262 or via email at email@example.com.
