Notice of Non-Discrimination
“No individual 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.” – Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)
Sinclair Community College is committed to providing an academic, work, and study environment free of inappropriate and disrespectful sexual conduct and communication in any form. Sinclair will conduct its programs, services, and activities in accordance with applicable federal laws, including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act, as well as state and local laws, and Sinclair policies.
On May 6, 2020 the U.S. Department of Education issued new Title IX regulations that make significant changes to the current Title IX policy and procedures used by Sinclair College. These new regulations, which take effect August 14, 2020, limit the scope and jurisdiction under which an individual may file a complaint, narrows the definitions of prohibited conduct, and uses a different approach to due process requiring that new grievance procedures be adopted and published by the College. They are a significant shift from current Title IX processes.
As always, Sinclair’s Title IX Office works to support a safe, respectful and healthy learning and working environment for all students, staff and faculty. With those principles in mind, the Title IX Office is working to align the College's Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Discrimination Policy and Procedures with the mandates in the new regulations. The President of Sinclair Community College has established the following Procedures to comply with applicable statutes, regulations, and official guidance. More information about the new policy will be shared with the College community soon.
Sinclair’s Board of Trustees adopt the policy to carry out Sinclair’s obligations under these laws. The following Procedures have been issued by the Sinclair President to comply with applicable statutes, regulations, and official guidance: Title IX Sexual Harassment and Sexual Discrimination Procedures.
Sinclair’s responsibilities and programs for preventing sexual harassment and sexual discrimination and addressing it when it occurs are coordinated by the Sinclair Title IX Coordinator. Resources are available for students and employees to address concerns pertaining to sex discrimination, including sexual harassment.
The United States Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the division of the federal government charged with enforcing compliance with Title IX. Information regarding OCR can be found at www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/index.html.
