Title IX Non-Discrimination Policy

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." 20 U.S.C. Section 1681


The Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College prohibits acts of sexual violence perpetrated by or against its students, staff, faculty, and visitors. SCTC is committed to ensuring that all students, regardless of their background or identity, have access to a quality learning experience and the opportunity to pursue their academic goals in a safe, supportive learning environment. SCTC abides by guidelines of Title IX, that no person shall be discriminated against, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination, including harassment,  in employment, admissions, education, or in any program or activity for which the College is responsible, on the basis of race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, disability, age, religion, medical condition, veteran status, marital status or any other characteristic protected by institutional policy or tribal or federal law.


As a recipient of federal funds, the Saginaw Chippewa  Tribal College must comply with Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. Section 1681 et seq. ("Title IX").  Title IX forbids sex discrimination in all college services and programs, including sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, the failure to provide equal opportunity, and discrimination based on pregnancy. SCTC prohibits all forms of sexual or gender-based discrimination, harassment, or misconduct, including sexual violence, sexual assault, stalking, and intimate partner violence. Misconduct of this nature is contrary to the Saginaw Chippewa Tribal College's institutional values and is prohibited by state, tribal and federal law. At SCTC we expect our administration, faculty, students, visitors, and vendors to conduct themselves in a way that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Any individual who is found to have violated this policy may face disciplinary sanctions up to and including expulsion from the college or termination of employment.


SCTC has assigned the responsibility of handling complaints regarding sex discrimination and other matters of discrimination to:
