About BCC

Title IX

Brunswick Community College is committed to ensuring equal access to its educational programs and employment opportunities without regard to the basis of race, sex/gender, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, color, language use, religion, religious creed, age, marital status, gender, gender identity, gender expression, cancer-related or genetic-related medical condition, disability, pregnancy, perceived pregnancy, citizenship status, military service status, or any other status protected by law (including Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972). Therefore, students, employees, applicants and other members of the Brunswick Community College community (including without limitation, vendors, visitors, and guests) may not be subject to discrimination or harassment or otherwise treated adversely based upon a protected characteristic. This includes, without limitation, sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Similarly, the College will not tolerate harassing, violent, intimidating or discriminatory conduct by its students, employees or any other member of or visitor to the College community.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX, as outlined in the U.S. Department of Education’s Dear Colleague Letter, 2011 and the 2020 Final Rule. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against people for making or participating in complaints of sex discrimination, see U.S. Department of Education, Dear Colleague Letter, 2011 and the 2020 Final Rule. For more information about Title IX in general, visit the U.S. Department of Education’s website.

Brunswick Community College encourages individuals to report all gender-based misconduct immediately to the Title IX Coordinator, or another College staff or faculty member. You may make a report to the Coordinators noted below.  Brunswick Community College designates two individuals to serve as Title IX Coordinators. One individual handles employee related incidents and the other handles student related incidents. The Title IX Coordinators have the primary responsibility for coordinating efforts related to the intake, investigation, resolution, and implementation of any supportive measures to stop, remediate, and prevent sexual harassment, and retaliation prohibited under this policy.

Unlawful Discriminatory Behaviors Under Title IX

Dating Violence is violence on the basis of sex, committed by a person who is in a social, romantic or intimate relationship.

Domestic Violence is violence on the basis of sex, committed by a current or former spouse or intimate partner of the Complainant.

Retaliation may be verbal, nonverbal, overt or subtle and is action taken against anyone reporting or participating in an investigation of Title IX allegations.

Sexual Harassment is the umbrella category including the offenses of sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, and dating violence and domestic violence.

Sexual Assault is any sexual act directed against another person without their consent or when they are incapable of giving consent.

Stalking is engaging in a course of conduct on the basis of sex, directed at a specific person that would cause that person to fear for their safety or suffer from emotional distress.

Confidential Versus Mandatory Reporters

All BCC employees are Mandatory Reporters and are expected to report actual or suspected sexual harassment or retaliation to appropriate officials immediately, with only limited exceptions. In some cases, a reporting individual may seek out college personnel who are considered to be Confidential Resources. These individuals, due to the nature of the support they can offer, will upon request by the reporting individual, keep the details of an incident confidential. Those individuals at BCC are the On-campus licensed professional counselor and additional counseling staff listed below.
