Title IX is a federal civil rights law that requires schools that have “actual knowledge” of an incident related to sexual discrimination (including sexual harassment and assault) to take action to eliminate the sexual harassment, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects.
Carteret CC endeavors to create and sustain a positive, responsive, and safe learning environment and a workplace free from sex discrimination. To do so, the college has established a policy that defines “unlawful harassment,” prohibiting behaviors that constitute unwelcome or unsolicited speech or conduct based upon race, sex, creed, religion, national origin, age, color, or handicapping condition as defined by G.S. 168A-3 that creates a hostile work or learning environment or circumstances involving quid pro quo.
The College’s Sex Discrimination and Harassment Policy include procedures for dealing with gender discrimination, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, sexual violence, and domestic violence.
The links on this page provide details on our Title IX Policy and Procedures and steps for submitting a complaint. A pdf version of the Sex Discrimination and Harassment Policy is also available by clicking here.
