Guilford Technical Community College is committed to providing an educational and working environment that is free from discrimination and harassment for faculty, staff, and students. This commitment extends to prospective employees (applicants) as well.

In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C.1681 etseq., GTCC prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities operated by recipients of Federal financial assistance. The College does not unlawfully discriminate and offers equal access to its educational programs and activities regardless of an individual’s sex or gender (including gender expression, gender identity and sexual orientation). Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of gender or sex can include sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual coercion, interpersonal violence, and stalking.

Retaliation against anyone who in good faith brings forward a complaint pursuant to this policy is strictly prohibited. Anyone responsible for retaliation, or threats of retaliation will be subject to disciplinary action by GTCC up to and including suspension, expulsion or other termination from the College. Retaliation should be reported promptly to one of the College’s Title IX Coordinators. Retaliation by a person not affiliated with the College may be addressed by Campus Police.

The United States Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the entity responsible for monitoring compliance with Title IX.
