Title IX Pregnancy
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex—including pregnancy and parental status—in educational programs and activities. Title IX also ensures the right to take medically necessary leave and to be free of harassment, intimidation, or other discrimination because of pregnancy-related conditions.
Jefferson College is committed to fostering an inclusive environment where all individuals are respected and empowered to achieve their goals. To that end, it is the policy of Jefferson College that no person shall, on the basis of sex, be subject to discrimination in employment or in admission to any educational program or activity of the College.
Any person who is aware of or who has experienced any form of discrimination based on pregnancy or parental status may make a report at any time, within or outside College business hours, to the Title IX Coordinator. Reports may be made in person, verbally, by phone, in writing through mail or electronic mail, through the College’s Maxient reporting portal (found in MyJeffco or at Jeffco.edu/titleix), or any other manner that delivers the information to the Title IX Coordinator at any time.
