What is Title IX?
Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in an education program or activity that receives federal financial assistance.
Under the Title IX Final Rule released by the Department of Education on May 6, 2020, Title IX applies to sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, or gender-based stalking that occurs in an education program or activity. Incidents that occur on campus or within a SFCC program or activity, which includes locations, events and circumstances where SFCC has substantial control over the conduct, are covered by Title IX.

- An SFCC employee conditioning the provision of an aid, benefit, or services of the College on an individuals’ participant in unwelcome sexual conduct;
- Unwelcome conduct determined by a reasonable person to be so severe, pervasive and objectively offensive that it effectively denies a person equal access to the College’s education program or activity; or
- Sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking.
