Title IX logoMassasoit Community College Cares

Our goal is to promote an educational environment and workplace that is free of all forms of sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, sexual violence, and retaliation. The College will not tolerate any such behaviors, all of which are prohibited by both law and College policy. We will keep our campuses and surrounding communities safe by responding effectively and immediately if an incident occurs.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states:
No person 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 Education Amendments was passed by the U.S. Congress in June 1972, and signed into law on July 1, 1972.  It is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education programs and activities such as:

  • Admissions
  • Housing and facilities
  • Courses and other educational activities
  • Career guidance and counseling activities
  • Financial aid
  • Health and insurance benefits
  • Scholastic, intercollegiate, club, or intramural athletics

The Title IX Coordinator is the designated College official with primary responsibility for coordinating the university’s compliance with Title IX. This includes providing leadership for Title IX activities; maintaining the College’s compliance with Title IX, providing consultation, education and training; and is responsible for administering the Policy on Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity & Diversity and its’ Complaint Procedure concerning all Title IX offenses.
