South Georgia State College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its educational programs, activities, employment or admissions and prohibits such discrimination by students, faculty, and staff. Non-discrimination on the basis of sex is mandated by Title IX if the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. 1681 et seq).

Sexual harassment is unwelcome, gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it has the effect of interfering with, denying or limiting someone’s ability to participate in or benefit from the college’s educational program and/or activities, and is based on power differential (quid pro quo), the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.

Sexual misconduct is a form of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX. Sexual misconduct refers to “physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent due to the victim’s use of drugs or alcohol. An individual also may be unable to give consent due to an intellectual or other disability.”  Sexual misconduct includes rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion.
