Title IX

Title IX


Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs, including athletic programs, or activities that receive federal funding.

“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.”  Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, rape, and sexual assault.

The Board is committed to assuring student equity in educational programs and college services. The President/Superintendent shall establish and implement a student equity plan that meets the Title 5 standards for such a plan.

The Redwoods Community College District has in place policies and procedures for Discrimination and Harassment Complaints and Investigations.  These policies and procedures can be found on the College of the Redwoods website or on the links below. 

Title IX requires College of the Redwoods to designate a Title IX Coordinator to monitor and oversee Title IX compliance.  Your campus Title IX Coordinator is available to explain and discuss:  your right to file a complaint; the complaint process; how confidentiality is handled; available resources both on and off campus; and other related matters.  The Title IX Coordinator for College of the Redwoods is Jordan Hamill, located in the Housing Office. For Title IX questions, or to file a Title IX complaint, please contact Jordan Hamill at 707-476-4398.

Unfortunately, life isn't perfect and situations happen.

When someone alleges harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, or sex discrimination or sexual assault, it is the college’s ethical and legal responsibility to conduct a thorough, timely, independent, and objective investigation. 

The Title IX Coordinator plays a crucial role in the investigation process.  All reports are taken seriously and investigated timely and thoroughly.
