What is Title IX?

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex at schools who receive federal funding. In other words, it is the law that protects against sexual misconduct in schools like Great Lakes Institute of Technology.

Prohibited behaviors included under Title IX are:

  • Sexual Assault
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Intimate-Partner Violence, including Dating Violence and
  • Domestic Violence
  • Stalking, including cyber-stalking

This prohibited conduct can affect all genders, gender identities and sexual orientations.

Anyone, including a third party, may make a report concerning sexual misconduct. People are encouraged to report sexual misconduct as soon as possible to allow Great Lakes Institute of Technology to respond promptly and effectively. Great Lakes is required by law to respond to all reports of sexual misconduct. The reports will go to the Title IX Coordinator.

What is a Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator is the person who is trained to handle Title IX complaints. It is their responsibility to makes sure anyone reporting understands their rights and options. In addition, a Title IX Coordinator responds to reports in a timely manner and ensures everyone involved in a report of sexual discrimination is treated fairly. You can contact your Title IX Coordinator at any time with any questions you may have.
