Safety & Equal Opportunity Resources

Speak-Up-for-SafetyTitle IX Overview – MATC's Commitment to Safety & Equal Opportunity  

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination. Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, sexual violence, and any other sex-based misconduct, relationship violence, discrimination based on pregnancy, and the failure to provide equal opportunity in all areas of schooling such as admissions, educational programs or activities, and athletics

In accordance with Title IX, and consistent with MATC's commitment to human dignity, any type of sexual discrimination or other unlawful discrimination or harassment is taken seriously and is promptly investigated by the college.  Sexual discrimination includes gender inequity as well as all forms of sexual misconduct including sexual harassment, stalking, sexual assault and other acts of sexual violence. The college will take prompt action to eliminate the sexual discrimination or misconduct, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.

All members of the MATC Community should read and be familiar with the college's policies and procedures regarding response to incidents of sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual abuse and any other form of unlawful discrimination or harassment.
