UA Nondiscrimination and Title IX Compliance

Title IX is commonly thought of as pertaining to Athletics, but the law is actually much broader. Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in all programs and activities of a college such as Kodiak College. Although two of the most common applications of the law are athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling and medical services, and all other programs, events and activities available to students at Kodiak College. Members of the university community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
