Notice of Nondiscrimination Under Title IX

The University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education programs and activities that it operates and is prohibited from doing so by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq., and the U.S. Department of Education’s implementing regulations, 34 CFR Part 106. The College’s nondiscrimination policy extends to admission, employment, and other programs and activities. Inquiries regarding the application of Title IX and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 may be sent to the College’s Title IX Coordinator, the U.S. Department of Education Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, or both.


Jurisdiction and Scope


Sexual harassment as defined in this policy (including sexual assault) is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited. Title IX requires the College to promptly and reasonably respond to sexual harassment in the College’s education programs and activities, provided that the harassment was perpetrated against a person in the United States. At the time that a formal complaint is filed, the complainant must be participating in (or attempting to participate in) an education program or activity of the College. An education program or activity includes locations, events, or circumstances over which the College exercised substantial control over both the respondent and the context in which the sexual harassment occurs, and also includes any building owned or controlled by a student organization that is officially recognized by a postsecondary institution. 

This policy applies to allegations and complaints of sexual harassment as defined herein.  All other complaints of discrimination or misconduct that do not fall within the jurisdiction of Title IX may be made through other campus procedures.


Reporting

Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by electronic mail, using the contact information listed above, or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or electronic mail address, or by mail to the office address, listed for the Title IX Coordinator.

All complaints or reports about sex discrimination (including sexual harassment) should be submitted to the Title IX Coordinator. Please complete the following Complaint Form.
