Title IX & Sexual Violence

Pursuant to Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and other applicable state laws and Piedmont Technical College Policy, it is illegal to harass or discriminate against any individual (faculty, staff, student, or visitor) on the basis of sex. Specifically Title IX states 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. Sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual violence, and sexual misconduct. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against an individual who, in good faith, asserts his or her rights under Title IX or other applicable federal laws and state laws prohibiting illegal discrimination.
