Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding.

For more information about Title IX, go to the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights.

A Message from the Title IX Coordinator

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College is committed to ensuring an institutional environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex or gender. An environment where all persons may pursue their studies, careers, duties, and activities in an atmosphere free of the threat of unwelcome and unwanted sexual actions. We take all forms of sexual harassment and other misconducts very seriously and place particular emphasis on responding effectively and fairly.

All of our Title IX personnel are trained in the process of our college’s policy and Title IX regulations. Also, with assistance from other departments, we aim to bring awareness to our students and employees annually.

Please take a few minutes to explore our Title IX webpage and to review our policy on Title IX and Sexual Harassment. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me directly.
