NCCU, Title IX Compliance & Campus Resources

 

February 6, 2019

NCCU Students, Faculty and Staff:

North Carolina Central University must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (including sexual harassment, sexual violence, and pregnancy) in the university's educational programs and activities. A newly proposed plan was unveiled by the U.S. Department of Education in November 2018 that would impact how schools are required to handle cases of sexual misconduct under Title IX. Over 100,000 comments were submitted to the Department of Education during a public comment period that ended just last week. The university will provide additional updates when final changes to Title IX are formalized and implemented by the Department of Education.

Although changes may be on the horizon at the federal level, NCCU’s Sexual Misconduct Policy (POL 01.04.4) continues to apply to all members of the NCCU community, including students, faculty, staff, administrators, volunteers, vendors, independent contractors, and any individuals regularly or temporarily employed, studying, living, visiting, conducting business or having any official capacity with the university. The Policy describes prohibited sexual misconduct, establishes procedures for responding to reports of sexual misconduct, and sets forth resources available to students and employees. All faculty and staff (with the exclusion of certain individuals who provide services to NCCU as licensed professional counselors) are considered responsible employees who must report instances of sexual misconduct to NCCU’s Title IX Coordinator.

All reports of sexual misconduct at North Carolina Central University—whether they are made by complainants, bystanders, or responsible employees—are taken extremely seriously and are immediately and thoroughly investigated by our Title IX office, as well as the NCCU Police Department or a collaborating law enforcement agency. A number of resources are available.

The safety, health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff are our utmost priority.

Thank you.
