Sexual harassment – Title IX (MTC POLICY 117)
Title IX is part of a 1972 federal education law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination. Mitchell Technical College is committed to providing a workplace and educational environment, as well as other benefits, programs, and activities, that are free from sexual harassment. To ensure compliance with federal and state civil rights laws, MTC has developed this policy and related procedures to provide a prompt, fair, and impartial process for those involved in an allegation of sexual harassment as defined by this policy. MTC values and upholds the equal dignity of all members of its community and strives to balance the rights of the parties during what is often a difficult time for all those involved.
Inquiries concerning discrimination, sexual harassment, and the application of Equal Opportunity, Title IX or Section 504 may be referred to the Mitchell Technical College Title IX Coordinator named below. Reports concerning discrimination, sexual harassment, and the application of Equal Opportunity, Title IX or Section 504 can be made at any time, including non-business hours by using the Title IX Coordinator’s listed telephone number or email address, or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report.
