About Title IX

The Facts

Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments states that:
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.

What It Means For Me

While Title IX is often associated with athletics and female students, it actually protects any person from sex-based discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived sex, gender identity and/or gender expression.  This protection applies to students, as well as employees, visitors, applicants for admissions and employment. Additionally, Title IX covers all aspects of NCMC’s educational programs and activities, not just athletics.

Our Stance

NCMC prohibits sex discrimination and is committed to fostering a learning environment that is safe, inclusive, and fosters academic success.

Sex discrimination involves differential treatment or adverse action based on a person’s real or perceived sex, gender identity and/or gender expression.  Sex discrimination includes discrimination on the basis of pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, and failure to conform to stereotypical notions of femininity and masculinity, as well as same gender harassment.  Sexual harassment is a form of prohibited sex discrimination, and sexual violence is a particularly severe form of sexual harassment.

NCMC considers sex discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense and a violation of Title IX and our Sexual Misconduct Policy . This policy applies to all members of the NCMC community and covers allegations made by or against students, faculty, staff, administrators, Board of Trustees, and third parties. The College’s prohibition of sexual discrimination extends to all aspects of its educational programs and activities, including, but not limited to, admissions, employment, academics, athletics, housing, and student services.

NCMC has jurisdiction over conduct covered by our policy that occurs on campus, during or at an official College program or activity (regardless of location), or off campus when the conduct could create a hostile environment on campus. The College will investigate complaints made under this policy and, if necessary, take action to prevent the recurrence and remedy its effects.
