Anne Arundel Community College is committed to providing programs, activities and an educational environment in which all individuals are valued, respected and secure. AACC does not discriminate against students, employees or member of our community on the basis of sex.

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally-funded education programs or activities. All public and private educational institutions receiving federal funds must comply with Title IX. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual exploitation and other forms of sexual misconduct.

Title IX Policies and Procedures

AACC is committed to providing a workplace and educational environment free from sexual misconduct or retaliation. The term sexual misconduct is an umbrella term that includes offenses of gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, stalking, dating and domestic violence, sexual exploitation and other related wrongdoing. 

AACC's Sexual Misconduct Policy was approved by our board of trustees in 2019. Our Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct Procedures were updated August 2020. Both were created to provide a prompt, fair and impartial process for those involved in an allegation of sexual misconduct and/or retaliation.
