Title IX

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

– Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act

The Title IX manager is the designated college official with primary responsibility for coordinating the college's compliance with Title IX. This includes providing leadership for Title IX activities; providing consultation, education and training; and helping to ensure the college responds appropriately, effectively and equitably to Title IX issues.

Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in all programs and activities of a college such as Chaffey College. Although two of the most common applications of the law are athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling and medical services, and all other programs and activities available to students at Chaffey College. If you have additional questions or concerns about Title IX, you can contact the Title IX Coordinator.

Mandatory Reporter

All college employees, including faculty, staff, and student workers, coaches and assistant coaches who have a responsibility for student welfare are required to share with the Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator any report of sexual misconduct they receive or of which they become aware.

All members of the college community, even those who are not obligated by this policy, are strongly encouraged to report information regarding any incident of sexual misconduct to the Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinator.

Certain members of the college community who are serving in a privileged professional capacity (e.g., licensed counselors, clergy, and medical providers) are not bound by this expectation, except as required by law.

When a report of sexual misconduct is investigated, the complainant, respondent and all identified witnesses who are interviewed in the investigation will be notified of the college’s expectation of confidentiality/privacy.  The college will make all reasonable efforts to maintain the confidentiality/privacy of the parties involved in sexual misconduct investigations.
