Title IX

Central Arizona College Title IX

What is Title IX?

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in educational programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. Central Arizona College is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination on the basis of sex (gender), including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, relationship (dating and domestic) violence, and stalking. Central Arizona College provides resources and reporting options to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sexual harassment and sexual violence prohibited by Title IX and college policy.

Central Arizona College (CAC) is committed to eliminating sexual harassment and sexual violence.

COVID-19 Update:

Dear Members of Central Arizona College-

As of Monday, May 3rd, 2021 all CAC campus locations are open to the public. Services are available in-person and will continue to be offered remotely. We would like to remind members of our community that maintaining an academic program free from discrimination and violence remains a high priority. Members of the community should be aware of the following points:

The Title IX office remains open and functioning at all times. Anyone impacted by discrimination or harassment/sexual misconduct is encouraged to contact Title IX Office using one of the methods listed below to make a report or discuss their options. Investigations will be conducted either in-person or remotely, and remedies provided, to assure that any discriminatory behaviors are addressed promptly.

Contact Title IX Coordinator
File a report online here.
Via email: titleix@centralaz.edu
Phone: 520-494-5106 or 520-840-1175

College policies regulate behavior that occurs between members of the campus community, but also apply to online and virtual activities. Any behavior that is prohibited by policy is also likely prohibited online, including forms of cyber-harassment, cyber-bullying, and cyber-stalking. Members of the community are expected to maintain a tone of civility and respect in online classes just as they would if they were in class physically.

It’s On Us

The It’s On Us campaign is a program of the Center for American Progress, in partnership with the White House council on Women and Girls, and the Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health. It’s on Us aims to change the way everyone thinks about sexual assault. Instead of viewing it as something that happens only between one victim and one offender, It’s On Us wants everyone to know they have a role to play in preventing sexual assault and raise awareness around rape culture.
