CALC, Institute of Technology is committed to creating a safe environment for all faculty, staff and students and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual harassment/misconduct, in its education and employment programs and activities.
Sexual harassment/misconduct definition includes but is not limited to unwelcome requests for sexual favors, sexual advances, other verbal, non-verbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature, or other sexual conduct, as well as sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking.
A critical campus concern is the impact of sexual and relationship violence on members of the CALC community. CALC strictly prohibits the crimes of sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking. Further, these crimes have no place within our community. The federal Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) placed obligations with colleges and universities under its Campus Sexual Violence Elimination (SaVE) Act provision in 2014. These regulations are designed, in part, to help prevent sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence and stalking, while also raising awareness and providing support at every turn. As required by the provisions of Title IX and 34 CFR part 106, CALC, Institute of Technology does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities and is required by Title IX and 34 CFR part 106 not to discriminate in such a manner. This non-discrimination in education programs and activities extends to employment and admissions.
To enforce Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education maintains an Office for Civil Rights (OCR), with headquarters in Washington, DC and 12 offices across the United States.
More information about Title IX and the OCR is available at: http://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/docs/tix_dis.html
