Title IX

Title IX page header


  Welcome to the Miles Community College Title IX Resource Page


Miles Community College is committed to providing an environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of every member of its community and that is free from harassment and discrimination based upon race, color, religion, national origin, creed, service in the uniformed services (as defined in state and federal law), veteran status, sex, age, political ideas, marital or family status, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, genetic information, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation. Such an environment is necessary to a healthy learning, working, and living atmosphere because discrimination and harassment undermine human dignity and the positive connection among all people at the college. Acts of discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, and retaliation shall be addressed consistent with College policy.

The Responsible Official is trained to help you find the resources you might need, to explain all reporting options, and to respond appropriately to conducts of concern.

      Mandatory Reporting Responsibilities


    Under the Office of Civil Rights, a responsible employee is any employee

    • who has the authority to take action to redress sexual harassment/misconduct;
    • who has been given the duty of reporting incidents of sexual harassment/misconduct or any other misconduct by students to the Title IX coordinator or other appropriate designee; or
    • who a student reasonably believes has this authority or duty
    All professional staff and faculty members of Miles Community College are responsible employees, unless they are designated as a confidential resource. This means that if an instance of sexual misconduct is brought to their attention, they must inform their supervisor, the Title IX Coordinator, or contact the Dean of Student Engagement and Auxiliary Services directly or through an online reporting form, so that the College may take appropriate action to end the misconduct or hostile environment.


      Campus Security Authority (CSA)


    All faculty and staff at Miles Community College serve as Campus Security Authorities. This includes Resident Advisors in the residence halls. CSAs are required to report certain crimes and to know reporting responsibilities so that the College can provide support to campus victims of crimes. CSAs are responsible for reporting allegations of Clery Act crimes that are reported to them. Crimes include murder/non-negligent manslaughter, manslaughter by negligence, rape, fondling, incest, statutory rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, motor vehicle theft, arson, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Additional items required to be reported include arrests and disciplinary referrals for weapons possession, drug abuse violations, liquor law violations, and hate crimes. While attention is given to provide privacy to the reporting party, confidentiality for these reports cannot be given. CSAs must report via online reporting mechanisms within 48 hours of receiving information of such crime. These reports are managed by the Dean of Student Engagement and the Dean of Administrative Services and Human Resources. Faculty and staff have access to this training on the Faculty/Staff pages and may submit reports via the form found on the secured forms section of the website.
