Title IX and non-discrimination notice

LCC provides equal opportunity for all persons and prohibits discriminatory practices based on race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, creed, ancestry, height, weight, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, disability, familial status, marital status, military status, veteran’s status, or other status as protected by law, or genetic information that is unrelated to the person’s ability to perform the duties of a particular job or position or participate in educational programs, courses, services or activities offered by the college. For more information, see LCC’s non-discrimination policy.

Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments, LCC prohibits sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct and sexual harassment. Sexual harassment is conduct on the basis of sex that satisfies one or more of the following: (1) An employee of LCC conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit or service of LCC on an individual’s participation in unwelcome sexual conduct; (2) Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to LCC’s education program or activity; or (3) Instances of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking.

All students, employees and third parties are encouraged to report all incidences of sexual harassment and misconduct. Reports of sexual misconduct or sexual harassment may be made to the Title IX coordinator, to the college, to law enforcement, to any of those or to none of those. A report may also be submitted to LCC Police Department, the Executive Director of Human Resources or any member of the Executive Leadership Team. Anyone experiencing unlawful discrimination or harassment can also file a complaint with other agencies, whether or not they have chosen to do so with the college or with law enforcement.

A complainant may submit a report to the Title IX coordinator in person, by phone, by mail, by email or through electronic form: Student Complaint Form. A formal complaint made under Title IX should also include a statement on the part of the complainant as to whether the complainant requests the college to commence an investigation into the alleged matter. Supportive measures are available to individuals regardless of whether they file a formal complaint. For more information about reporting an incident and grievance procedures see the College’s Sexual Misconduct webpage and the Prohibited Sex- or Gender-Based Discrimination, Harassment and Sexual Misconduct policy.
