Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination, based on sex, in every educational program or activity that receives federal funding, such as Davidson-Davie Community College.  Title IX allows for students who are dealing with issues such as sex discrimination, pregnancy, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, sexual misconduct, and stalking, to have supports in place.  Davidson-Davie Community College is committed to providing an educational and working environment that is free from discrimination and misconduct based on sex and gender, including discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.  We also strive to provide equitable support and processes to students who have experienced harm and those who have been accused of perpetrating harm.

Who Can Make a Title IX Report?

The Title IX Coordinator ensures that Davidson-Davie Community College is in compliance with federal Title IX regulations. Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment to the Title IX Coordinator at any time in person, by mail, by telephone, by electronic mail, or by using the link to the reporting form below. A confidential report may be made to the Campus Nurse, Kendra Benson, or the Campus Counselor, Electre Turner.

What Protections Do I Have if I am a Pregnant or Parenting Student?

Title IX regulations offer pregnant and parenting students protections consistent with the protections offered to students with a temporary medical condition. Students who anticipate that they may require accommodations related to pregnancy or parenting may work collaboratively with the Title IX Coordinator, Disability Access Services, and their Medical Provider to create a support plan. The first step is to meet with the Title IX Coordinator to discuss protections under Title IX.

What Happens After a Report Has Been Made?

The Title IX Coordinator meets with the complainant (the person who has allegedly experienced a Title IX policy violation) and the respondent (the person identified as responsible for the alleged Title IX policy violation). Both the complainant and respondent are offered supportive measures. An investigation is conducted via formal or informal processes. For more information about these processes, see Policies and Procedures.
