Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in an educational setting. It was first passed in 1972, and over the years has become widely and legally understood to define sexual misconduct as a form of gender discrimination.
At Central Wyoming College, Title IX guides the College’s processes and procedures for investigating and adjudicating reports of sexual misconduct, as well as offering support options. Title IX also provides a mechanism for letting the federal government know when you believe that Central Wyoming College (or any school) has not met their obligations to stop and prevent sexual violence within the educational setting.
- The procedures guiding student behavior, including all possible disciplinary action, are provided in the CWC Student Handbook 2020-2021.
- The procedures guiding staff/faculty behavior, are provided in Personnel Procedures.
For more detail about staff requirements, processes, or support services, please view Supporting Student Survivors.
If you want to report sexual misconduct anywhere on campus, you can report to Campus Security at 855-2143, the Title IX Coordinator at 855-2113, or complete this form.
- All staff are required to report any notice provided by a student about possible sexual misconduct to Campus Security or the Title IX Coordinator. If a student wishes or is unsure if they want to maintain confidentiality, please refer them to a campus counselor. Otherwise, all other staff are required to report incidences of sexual misconduct.
