Pearl River Community College

Title IX

Pearl River Community College prohibits sexual misconduct in any form, including sexual and gender-based harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, stalking, and intimate partner violence. This policy describes prohibited sexual conduct, establishes procedures for responding to reports of sexual misconduct, and provides information on the resources available to the campus community.

Pearl River Community College is committed to fostering and maintaining a safe and healthy academic, work, and living environment in which no member of the College community is discriminated against on the basis of sex, gender or gender identity, and sexual orientation in any College program or activity. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and is inconsistent with the standards and ideals of our community. This policy is designed to ensure a safe and non-discriminatory academic, work, and living environment and to meet state and federal requirements under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and relevant sections of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act.
