Policies and Procedures

The below District policies are designed to ensure an academic and work environment free from sex and gender-based harassment in accordance with Title IX.   These policies and procedures protect students, faculty members and employees in connection with all academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic and other programs of the District, including those programs sponsored by the District at another location.  

In response to recent decisions made by the California Court of Appeals and new Title IX regulations, the South Orange County Community College District implemented Board Policy and Administrative Regulation 3433 Sexual Harassment Prevention and Complaints under Title IX. This policy is applicable to sexual harassment that allegedly occurred on or after August 14, 2020 and supersedes the grievance process under BP/AR 3430 and BP/AR 3540 with respect to cases that fall under the jurisdiction of Title IX.
