Sexual Discrimination, Harassment and Misconduct

Moraine Valley Community College is committed to providing a learning atmosphere that is free from intimidation or harassment; therefore, sex discrimination will not be tolerated. The college does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and employment policies in conformance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Illinois Preventing Sexual Violence in Higher Education Act, and relevant sections of the Illinois Human Rights Act. This policy complies with the requirements of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act and the Violence Against Women Act, which mandate procedures to address sexual violence. In accordance with Title IX, upon receipt of a complaint of sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, or sexual assault, the college will take immediate action and appropriate steps to investigate what occurred, to take prompt and effective action to end the harassment, to remedy the effects, and to prevent the harassment from occurring again.

The college has designated the dean of Student Success as the Title IX coordinator.
