Cincinnati State is committed to adhering to all requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels. If any part of a school district or college receives any federal funds for any purpose, all of the operations of the district or college are covered by Title IX.
Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students (as well as other persons) at recipient institutions are protected by Title IX—regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part- or full-time status, disability, race, or national origin—in all aspects of a recipient’s educational programs and activities.
Because we want to ensure that we create and maintain a learning environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment, it is the policy of Cincinnati State Technical and Community College to provide equal opportunity in education and employment and not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, creed, religion, or status as a veteran of war as required by Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Age Discrimination Act of 1975. Prohibited sex discrimination includes sexual harassment.
Reports of violations of these laws can be made using procedures in the Student Code of Conduct (if student to student) and to the Human Resources Department (if employee to student, or student to employee, or employee to employee). Please be aware that reporting alleged violations of Title IX and other laws mentioned above to certain non-counseling personnel can trigger mandatory reporting requirements. Examples of such personnel include:
- College Title IX Administrator (Human Resources Director)
- Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services
- Cincinnati State Behavioral Intervention Team
- Designated Title IX Investigators
- Public Safety Officials
- Advisors and Instructors
- Office of Enrollment and Student Development
- Management Staff
If you believe you are the victim of a violation of Title IX or another of the laws cited above and you wish to report an incident, but prefer the details be kept confidential, you can contact College counseling services or community-based counseling/advocacy resources.
Certain resources as noted will not be required to tell anyone else your private, personally identifiable information unless there is just cause for your safety or the safety of others. If you are unsure of someone’s duties and ability to maintain your privacy, ask them before you talk to them.
Because we want staff and students informed about the internal resources available to assist anyone in handling a situation that may be covered under Title IX:
- Any student or employee who believes that he or she has been the subject of sexual violence, sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, stalking, discrimination or sexual harassment should report the incident or incidents to the Director of Human Resources, who also serves as the College’s Title IX Administrator. If the complaint is against that official, the complainant should report the matter to the Vice President of Administration's office for referral to an alternate designee. The College encourages the timely reporting of any incident(s) of discrimination or sexual harassment.
- Call: 513-569-1565 and request the Director of Human Resources
- Or Email: email@example.com and indicate to the attention of the Director of Human Resources
- Or file an incident report: access the Maxient reporting system at
- All reports of incident(s) will be forwarded to the Title IX Coordinator/Director, Human Resources for coordination and a determination on how to process the complaint.
Being great at Cincinnati State means that we all commit to fostering a safe, secure, caring environment in which all can learn and work.
