Title IX

Kansas City Kansas Community College is committed to providing a non-discriminatory and harassment-free educational, living and working environment for all members of the campus community, including students, faculty, administrators, staff, trustees or visitors. This policy prohibits all forms of sexual or gender-based harassment and sexual assault.

Title IX, regulated by the Office of Civil Rights, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. All schools who receive any federal financial assistance must comply with Title IX.

Statistics

  • 60% of campus rapes occur in the residence of the victim.
  • 90% of college women who are victims of rape knew their attacker (classmate, friend, boyfriend, ex-boyfriend, other acquaintance)
  • 75% of sexual assaults involve alcohol (offender, victim, or both had been drinking).
  • 1 out of 4 college women will be sexually assaulted by the time they graduate.
  • Bystander intervention is the most effective method to reduce sexual assaults.

Reporting is the first step

While a victim can report sexual misconduct to any member of the campus community, the law requires that all college employees are “responsible employees.” All employees receive training on proper reporting procedures, and provide accurate information to the Title IX Coordinator.

Although the College cannot protect victims at off-campus locations, the college will make sure the victim is aware of legal options by working with local law enforcement. 
Outcome
