Title IX

San Joaquin Delta Community College District adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination, harassment, and retaliation in employment and education.  Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. All public and private elementary and secondary schools, school districts, colleges, and universities receiving any federal financial assistance must comply with Title IX.  The District does not discriminate in its admissions practice, in its employment practices, or in its educational programs or activities on the basis of sex/gender.  Sex includes sex, sex stereotypes, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and pregnancy or parenting status.

The District is committed to creating and maintaining an environment free from any form of sexual misconduct.  Sexual misconduct — including sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, and stalking — is inconsistent with our District’s values and prohibited under Title IX, other federal laws and state and local laws, and District Policy. The District will investigate known incidents of alleged sexual misconduct, take immediate action to stop the behavior, prevent its reoccurrence, and address its effects.  The District addresses sexual misconduct violations through the process outlined in Administrative Procedure 5540.  The Title IX Coordinator and Title IX Co-Coordinators have been designated to handle such complaints.
