Title IX / Sexual Misconduct
Title IX prohibits sex-based discrimination in higher education, with this language: “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.”
Board of Trustees Policy Regarding Gender Discrimination
Palm Beach State College is committed to an academic and working environment free from harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.
Harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, or retaliation, threatens the legitimate expectation of all members of the College community that the campus environment will be conducive to work or study.
Preventing harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation is the responsibility of the entire College. It is contrary to the College policy for any individual to engage in retaliatory action against a person who files a harassment, sexual harassment, and/or discrimination complaint.
Accordingly, Palm Beach State College encourages all employees and students who believe they are being subjected to harassment, sexual harassment, discrimination, or retaliation to follow the outlined complaint procedures.
The College will take prompt disciplinary action against individuals, including third parties, at any locations who engage in actions that violate this policy.
The college will comply with all said laws in the legal authority section of this
policy, investigation, review and disposition of matters involving students to include
compliance with Title IX.
