In accordance with the LCTCS Power Based Violence / Sexual Misconduct policy and LCTCS Title IX Grievances Procedures, Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which sexual violence against men and women is not tolerated. Intervening in such instances helps to foster a safe environment for all, while sending a message that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated and is unacceptable in our community. BPCC is a college community where respect, consent and responsibility are valued. We are all responsible for ensuring that no one has to endure sexual violence of any sort.

BPCC has trained Confidential Advisors who serve to aid persons involved in a sexual misconduct complaint in the resolution process as a confidential resource.  See current list of Bossier Parish Title IX Confidential Advisors.

Things You Should Know About Title IX:

  1. Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
  2. Title IX does not apply to female students only.
  3. BPCC must take immediate action to ensure a complainant-victim can continue their education free of ongoing sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence.
  4. BPCC must have an established procedure for handling complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.
  5. BPCC can issue a no contact directive under Title IX to prevent the accused student from approaching or interacting with you.
  6. BPCC may not retaliate against someone filing a complaint and must keep a complainant-victim safe from other retaliatory harassment or behavior.
  7. BPCC must be proactive in ensuring that your campus is free of sex discrimination.
  8. In cases of sexual violence, schools are prohibited from encouraging or allowing mediation of the complaint.
  9. BPCC should not make survivors pay the cost of certain accommodations that they require in order to continue their educations after experiencing violence.
