What is Title IX?
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." —Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972
Bucks County Community College (the College) complies with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination (including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct and sexual violence) based on gender in the College's educational programs and activities. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for asserting such claims of discrimination. The College is committed to providing an environment free from gender-based discrimination or harassment.
