The U.S. Secretary of Education has amended regulations implementing Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 that will result in Valencia College implementing some necessary procedural changes in our Discrimination, Harassment and Related Misconduct Policy, 6Hx28:2-01. As the regulations will be effective Friday, August 14, 2020, the College will update the procedures within this policy online by this date.
Although our policy statement will not change and our commitment to responding to all types of discrimination and harassment remains, you will find the changes specific to Title IX Sexual Misconduct listed in the policy with additional resources available in the coming weeks at www.valenciacollege.edu/EO. Additional information regarding these changes will be shared in The Juice and The Grove on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, and these changes have also been shared with the Faculty Policy Review Committee.
If you have any questions regarding the policy or procedures, please contact Assistant Vice President, Equity and Access and Title IX Coordinator Ryan Kane, at 407-582-5000, extension 3421 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
