Title IX Compliance
Non-discrimination on the basis of sex is mandated by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. §§ 1681 et seq.) and the corresponding implementation regulations (34 C.F.R. Part 106).To ensure compliance with Title IX and other federal and state civil rights laws, the college has developed policies that prohibit sex discrimination, which includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual violence by employees, students, or third parties.
Title IX Training
Title IX training, including the prevention of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual assault, is required of all WNC employees every two years and is offered to WNC students each semester. The Title IX training requirement for employees can be satisfied by completing an online training module or by attending an in-person training session. Employees may contact Brenda Yenkole (Brenda.Yenkole@WNC.edu) for more information. Title IX training for students is offered to students each semester through the Campus Clarity online training program. Students are not required to complete the training, but doing so is the best way for students to understand their rights and responsibilities under Title IX. Students may contact Piper McCarthy (Piper.McCarthy@wnc.edu) to either request a link to the training or for information about the training.
