N-2-0 Title IX Introduction

Title IX refers to the federal law prohibiting sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking on college campuses. The policies listed in this section apply only to qualifying Title IX allegations specifically prohibited by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. According to the Federal Office for Civil Rights and the U. S. Department of Education, Title IX’s reach is limited in scope. However, state of Oregon laws and COCC policies prohibit more activities than Title IX. See G-28-3 and N-3 for policy and procedure details.

Please see G-28-0.2, Definition of Terms, for the terms used in this section.
