The safety of students, faculty and staff is a top priority at East Georgia State College, and we are committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect. All members of the EGSC community have an obligation to stay informed about Title IX in order to recognize and take steps to prevent discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct, and to respond effectively if such behavior does occur. All Title IX complaints, as well as complaints under the Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy, are handled by the Title IX Coordinator.
Title IX is a broad federal law prohibiting gender-based discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funds. It prohibits gender-based discrimination in all college programs and activities, including admissions, athletics, employment, housing, financial aid, recruitment, clubs and organizations.
Title IX protection from discrimination extends to faculty, staff and students. It includes such things as: sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, gender-identity and pregnancy. It also prohibits retaliation against anyone who makes or participates in a complaint.
