Title IX Complaints
El Centro College is committed to prompt resolution of complaints in a manner consistent with our policies. You do not have to use this form to receive assistance; however, this form will be used so that we can be certain that all necessary steps for a resolution have been completed. This form is to be used for reporting to the Title IX Coordinator.
If you are a student who believes you have been subjected to (1) sexual harassment by College faculty or staff; or (2) any other form of gender discrimination under Title IX, you may report such misconduct or file a formal complaint with the Title IX Coordinator office B-270. If you are a student who believes you have been or are the victim of sexual harassment, including sexual assault, sexual violence or other sexual misconduct, by another College student, you may report such conduct or file a complaint under Title IX with the Title IX Coordinator in office B-270.
If you are an employee who believes you have been subjected to discrimination under Title IX, including sexual harassment, or who wishes to file a complaint under Title IX, you can do so with the Title IX Coordinator in A-240.
Failure to Comply with Title IX
The penalty for failure to comply with Title IX in the most extreme circumstances can include the termination of all or part of an institution’s federal funding. This includes grants, subsidies, and other program funds from the federal government. In addition to the loss of federal funds, institutions may be sued by those seeking redress for violations of Title IX.
It is essential that institutions receiving federal financial assistances operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at ECC, the staff member who has primary responsibility for Title IX compliance is listed under Contact Information.
