General Scope

Lansing Community College prohibits sexual harassment and sexual discrimination in its employment and educational programs.  Students, employees, and visitors are encouraged to report any allegations of sexual misconduct through the links listed above.

The College’s Board of Trustees has a policy that details expectations of students, employees, and visitors. The policy is called Prohibited Sex or Gender Based Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct, and can be found via the link below.

What is Title IX?

Title IX protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal assistance. Title IX states:

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.”

- Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972.

Sexual misconduct has been defined by state and federal law and regulations to generally mean unwelcome conduct, based on sex or on gender stereotypes, which is so severe or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with a person's College employment, academic performance, or participation in College programs or activities and creates a working, learning, program, or activity environment that a reasonable person would find intimidating, hostile, or offensive.

Title IX Investigatory Process

Any member of the LCC community may file a complaint by following the links at the top of this page.

Once received, the appropriate Title IX Coordinator and team begin the appropriate investigatory process.  An investigation into student matters is different from an investigation into employee matters, so there are two different processes, listed below.

What is a Title IX Coordinator?

The College has two Title IX Coordinators, Christine Thompson (for allegations against a student) and Lori Willett (for allegations against an employee or visitor to the College). Contact information for each of these Coordinators is found at the top of this page.

A Title IX Coordinator plays an essential role in ensuring that every person in the LCC community is aware of their rights under Title IX and that the College complies with its legal obligations under Title IX. Title IX Coordinators also develop training, policies, and procedures. They are trained in both Title IX and investigations and act as campus resources for those who need more information.

Prevention and Outreach

Campus Landscapes Wednesday September 5, 2018

New students receive Title IX information at orientation, and returning students receive information by email each semester. Additional educational programming is offered to all students throughout the academic year. The College mandates training at the time of hire and then annually for all employees. This training is conducted through the College’s Talent Management System. Throughout each academic year, both Title IX Coordinators provide the LCC community with additional educational resources.

Mandatory Reporters

All LCC employees, including executives, administrators, faculty, and support personnel are "Mandatory Reporters." Mandatory reporters are required to report all alleged sexual misconduct, including retaliation, to a Title IX Coordinator. Student employees are not mandatory reporters, but may choose to report alleged sexual misconduct.

Counselors are not mandatory reporters, as the information shared with them is kept confidential. Allegations brought to counselors may be kept confidential and not reported to a Title IX Coordinator.

Complainant Resources

Many times, those making a complaint of sexual misconduct would like support beyond what a Title IX Coordinator can provide. The Campus Resources document below contains a list of internal and external resources available to anyone who is part of the LCC Community.
