Title IX & Discrimination

Everett Community Colleges is committed to creating a welcoming campus community where all people have access to our educational programs, activities, residence halls, and employment.  We understand that for our campus to be welcoming and safe, it must be free from all forms of discrimination.   

Everett Community College does not discriminate based on, but not limited to, race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy or parental status, marital status, disability, genetic information, or status as a veteran of war.  

The Title IX Coordinator is charged with the responsibility of ensuring our campus compliance with federal, state, and campus Title IX and non-discrimination regulations. This includes the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with regulations, to prevent discrimination, and to stop, remediate, and prevent the recurrence of any reported discrimination.  

Title IX - What is it? 

Title IX is a federal law that 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 subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Sex discrimination includes discrimination based on someone’s:

  • Sex
  • Gender identity or expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy or parental status
  • Marital status

Sex discrimination also includes all form of sexual misconduct, which is a term that encompasses sexual harassment and sexual violence (sexual assault, rape, stalking, and domestic/intimate partner violence).

Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator is available to provide you with campus support resources, interim measures, and to connect you with local resources.  Examples of interim measures including working with faculty and staff to provide reasonable accommodations, issuing a campus no contact directive between two Everett Community College members (i.e. two students), preventing them from having any contact, etc.  The Title IX Coordinator can also arrange for a member from a community resource (such as Domestic Violence Services) to meet with you on campus in a space you are familiar and comfortable with.  The same is true if you choose to file a report with local police; the Title IX Coordinator and/or Campus Safety & Security can arrange for a police officer to meet with you on campus to provide your report.  

The Title IX Coordinator can also talk with you about your reporting options.  For more information, please review our What to Expect When Reporting page or contact the Title IX Coordinator directly at 425-388-9271 or TitleIXCoordinator@everettcc.edu.
