What is Title IX? 
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states:  "No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.  The regulations regarding The IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 can be found on the Department of Justice website.
Normandale Community College does not tolerate sexual misconduct or sexual violence of any kind in any context.  We are committed to empowering students who experience sexual assault or other forms of gender-based violence to pursue disciplinary, criminal, and civil action if they choose to do so.
If you are a member of the Normandale Community College community and have experienced sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, dating/intimate partner or domestic violence, harassment based on gender nonconformity, stalking, cyber-stalking, or retaliation, you have options for support.

 

FYI: No disciplinary action will be taken against you by Normandale Community College for violating campus conduct policy regarding alcohol or drug use if you are reporting an act of gender-based violence.
 
Confidential Resources 

If you are not sure whether or not you want to keep an issue confidential, begin by contacting one of the following people or organizations on or off campus for confidential support.   The on-campus confidential resources are currently in the Partnership Center.  You can schedule an appointment at the Student Services Check-in desk on the ground floor of the Partnership Center, or by calling 952-358-8261.

Reporting
If anyone believes there has been an act of discrimination on the basis of sex against any person or group in a program or activity that receives financial assistance may file a complaint under Title IX using the sexual misconduct report form.
 
Tell Staff or Faculty 
If you decide to tell Normandale Community College staff or faculty, they will be required to notify the Title IX Coordinator.  The Title IX Coordinator will then contact you to discuss options for support and accountability.
