Title IX

Members of the Illinois Valley Community College community, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination and sexual misconduct, examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. 

Therefore, it is the policy of the Board of Trustees of Illinois Valley Community College to provide an educational and employment environment free from all forms of sexual misconduct, sexual and other harassment of employees, students and other individuals at any College facilities or in connection with any College activities. Additionally, this policy will also apply to misconduct that occurs off-campus insomuch as it materially and substantially interferes with the college’s operational and educational programs or the safety and welfare of the college community. Finally, retaliation for making a good faith complaint of harassment or for participating in a harassment investigation is also prohibited.

The College believes in zero tolerance for sex/gender based misconduct. Zero tolerance means that when an allegation of misconduct is brought to an appropriate administrator’s attention, protective and other remedial measures will be used to reasonably ensure that such conduct ends, is not repeated, and the effects on the reporting party and community are remedied, including serious sanctions when a responding party is found to have violated this policy.
