Sexual Misconduct and 第九条

Virginia Peninsula shall not tolerate 性ual misconduct in any form. Sexual misconduct is a flagrant violation of the values and behavioral expectations for a college community, and all reported violations shall be investigated. An educational institution is a community of trust whose very existence depends on the recognition of everyone's importance and value. This trust creates the freedom for everyone to live, 认为, 行为, and speak without fear of physical harm. Sexual misconduct shatters the bond of trust within a college community.

Virginia Peninsula is committed to providing an environment that is free from harassment and discrimination based on any status protected by law. This 政策 supplements the following general policy statement set forth by the Virginia Community College System:

This institution promotes and maintains educational opportunities without regard to race, color, 性, 种族, 宗教, 性别, age (except when age is a bona fide occupational qualification), 残疾, 国家的起源, 或者其他非优点因素. This 政策 also addresses the requirements under the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (also known as the Campus SaVE Act).

第九条, 1972年通过的一项法律, prohibits 性 discrimination and requires 性别 equity in educational programs that receive federal funding. 第九条规定如下:

"No person in the United States shall, 以性别为基础, be excluded from participation in, 被剥夺…的利益, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or 行为ivity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Virginia Peninsula Community College's 第九条政策is not intended to substitute or supersede related criminal or civil law. Individuals should report incidents of 性ual and domestic violence, 约会暴力, and 跟踪 to law enforcement authorities. Criminal and civil remedies are available in addition to the potential remedies that the College may provide.

If you believe that you have been involved in a situation that may have included 性ual misconduct (domestic violence, 跟踪, 约会暴力, 性侵犯, 或性骚扰), 然后请点击 报告事故 button on the bottom of this page, and complete the form. The 第九条 Coordinator or deputy will promptly respond to your report.
