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.  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.  

DCCC’s Commitment

Davidson County 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.  

What is the difference between a complainant and respondent?

Complainant: a person who submits a complaint alleging a Title IX policy violation or is identified as the person who has allegedly experienced a Title IX policy violation.
 
Respondent: a person designated to respond to a Title IX policy violation complaint or is identified as the person responsible for the alleged sexual misconduct   

What happens after a report of an alleged Title IX incidence has been made?

It is important to report concerns involving real or perceived discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault/violence, and stalking.   Your role as a bystander is critical.  Bystanders recognize potentially harmful interactions, feel a sense of personal responsibility, and choose to respond in a way that could positively impact the outcome.  As a bystander, if you interpret an event as harmful and cannot intervene, please inform authorities immediately.  If you deem it safe to do so, you may be able to interrupt the harmful interaction.   

Do: 

  • Prioritize safety.  If you are in danger, please call 911.
  • Take your concerns seriously. 
  • Take care of yourself. Experiencing and observing these types of incidences can be emotionally taxing.
  • Keep the Title IX Coordinator and/or Deputy Title IX Coordinators updated. 

Do not: 

  • Engage in the blame game. 
  • Ignore the situation.
  • Criticize or retaliate.
