As a member of the Gateway Technical College community, Title IX protects you from discrimination based on sex throughout your educational journey. Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that states:
“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.”
This means while at Gateway Technical College, you are protected from all forms of sex discrimination and harassment, whether you are a student, employee, contractor, guest or visitor. We are dedicated to providing an education and employment environment free from all forms of illegal harassment and discrimination.
Gateway’s Office for Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights provides support services, investigations, and resolution options without regard to the legal status of the parties or witnesses and does not report immigration status to immigration authorities.
