What is Title IX?
Title IX states that no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation
in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program
or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. More than just legislation that
ensures gender equity in sports, Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment, which
includes acts of sexual violence, as a form of sex discrimination.
Louisburg College is committed to providing a safe living, learning, and working environment
that is free from harassment and discrimination. Louisburg College believes that all
people should be treated with respect and dignity and that we are all accountable
for our actions. As such, Louisburg College does not tolerate sexual misconduct. Sexual
misconduct may include but is not limited to sexual assault, non-consensual sexual
contact, non-consensual sexual intercourse, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment,
sexual coercion, dating and relationship violence, and stalking. All acts of sexual
misconduct are forms of sex discrimination and are prohibited by Title IX and College
Title IX Coordinator
Each campus is required to designate a Title IX Coordinator to handle Title IX concerns,
including informal and formal complaints. Any complaint or report of an actual or
potential Title IX issue should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator. Louisburg's
Title IX Coordinator is:
Title IX Coordinator
Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Student Life
Deputy Title IX Coordinator for Human Resources
While all persons receiving a report of sexual misconduct understand the desire to
keep information confidential, maintaining confidentiality is not always possible.
The only Offices at Louisburg College permitted to guarantee confidentiality are:
Joel Porter Counseling Center (919) 497-3205
College Chaplain (919) 497-3231
Campus Health Clinic (919) 497-1399
The above offices may be consulted at any time, including prior to making an official
report to the College or law enforcement officials. To the extent possible, the College
will respect an individual’s request for confidentiality; however, the request for
confidentiality will be weighed against the College’s obligation to act on information
it has received in order to provide a safe campus environment.
