Minnesota State System Procedure


The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance.

Title IX states that 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.

Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC) has Title IX obligations in recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment. Also, ATCC may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or made charges, testified or participated in any complaint under Title IX. For ATCC to retaliate in any way is considered a violation of Title IX.
