Title IX

Title IX – Prohibits Sexual Harassment and Discrimination on Basis of Gender

UCC is committed to diversity and equal employment/education opportunity. We comply with Title IX. This is a federal civil rights law. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally-financed education programs.

UCC protects and supports the 1972 Educational Amendments of Title IX. We work to:

  • Promote equity in academic and athletic programs.
  • Prevent hostile environments on the basis of sex.
  • Prohibit sexual harassment and sexual violence.
  • Protect from retaliation and remedy the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.
  • Investigate and notify the college community of serious or ongoing threats. We work to prevent a recurrence.
