Title IX: Know Your Rights!

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels. If any part of a school district or college receives any Federal funds for any purpose, all of the operations of the district or college are covered by Title IX. Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students (as well as other persons) at recipient institutions are protected by Title IX – regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part or full time status, disability, race, or national origin – in all aspects of a recipient’s educational programs and activities.

Title IX Regulations

On May 7, 2020, the United States Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights issued amended regulations governing college and university handling of sexual misconduct under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) is committed to providing an equitable, inclusive educational and working environment where sex and gender discrimination and sexual misconduct are not tolerated. Therefore, just as all educational institutions that receive federal funding are required to ensure polices are compliant with new regulations, BPCC will determine how to adjust existing policies to comply with new regulations no later than August 14, 2020.

Bossier Parish Community College does not discriminate in its hiring or employment practices.
