Title IX

Discrimination and harassment free

Title IX Defined

“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 (Amended Higher Education Act of 1972).”

Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Statement

Bay College takes its responsibilities under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 seriously. Bay College is committed to providing an educational environment free from discrimination or harassment based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender identity, age, disability, or other protected status. Bay College Board Policy 1060 prohibits discrimination or harassment based on sex or gender. Prohibited acts include but are not limited to sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

Students who experience or observe an incident of sex- or gender-based discrimination are encouraged to report it to a College employee or a member of the College’s Title IX team. Faculty and staff are considered “responsible employees” and are required to report any such incident they observe or of which they are made aware. The only exceptions to the faculty member's reporting obligation are when incidents of sexual violence are communicated by a student during a classroom discussion, in a writing assignment for a class, or as part of a College-approved research project. Students also have options to discuss issues confidentially. If you feel that you have been discriminated against, harassed, or suffered violence at the College based on your gender, you have remedies. Speak with one of the Title IX compliance staff or submit a complaint online.


All Bay College employees involved with the Title IX grievance process are trained on an ongoing basis. A list of trainings is provided below. The materials provided may include proprietary and copyrighted materials, and use of these materials for any purpose beyond review and inspection as pursuant by law will be pursued as a violation of copyrights.
