What is Title IX?
Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. Sex discrimination encompasses all forms of sexual violence and sexual harassment by employees, students, or third parties against students, employees or third parties. Craven Community College provides equal employment and educational opportunity on the basis of merit without discrimination due to age, race, ethnicity, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, veteran’s status, or disability.
