Title IX Compliance

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that provides: 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 prohibits sex discrimination in all university programs and activities, including, but not limited to, admissions, recruiting, financial aid, academic programs, student services, counseling and guidance, discipline, class assignment, grading, recreation, athletics, housing, and employment.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against people for making or participating in complaints of sex discrimination.

As a campus of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (Minnesota State) system, ATCC has an enduring commitment to enhancing Minnesota’s quality of life by developing and fostering understanding and appreciation of a free and diverse society and providing equal opportunity for all its students and employees. To help effectuate these goals, ATCC is committed to a policy of equal opportunity and nondiscrimination in employment and education.

Harassment on the basis of race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression is prohibited.

To further its commitment against sexual violence, ATCC provides reporting options, an investigative and disciplinary process, and prevention training or other related services as appropriate.

Alexandria Technical & Community College leverages the It's On Us campaign to promote awareness and stop sexual violence. It's On Us is a cultural movement aimed at fundamentally shifting the way we think and talk about sexual assault.

Sexual Violence Prevention Training

Sexual Violence Prevention Training is a training course developed by Minnesota State Colleges and Universities. The course focuses on promoting the intellectual awareness of all students, offering accessible resources and services from the university regarding sexual violence and sexual harassment. At the university, we believe that students need to be actively engaged in their education and engaged in contributing to keeping the campus safe.

All incoming students are required to complete the training course, located on D2L Brightspace. Students must complete the course by the tenth (10th) day from the start of the academic semester. The university automatically enrolls students in the online training course according to their enrollment as required by state and federal law. If a student has experienced sexual violence or relationship/domestic violence, they should contact the Title IX Coordinator for alternative training.

Those who fail to complete the training program will have a registration hold placed on their student account, preventing their registration for the subsequent semester. Students can resolve this hold by completing the online training.
