TITLE IX POLICY 

Title IX - Notice of Nondiscrimination:

Louisburg College, in compliance with and as required by Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 and its implementing regulations (“Title IX”) and other civil rights laws, as well as in furtherance of its own values as a higher education institution, does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, pregnancy, disability, age, religion, veteran status, or any other characteristic or status protected by applicable local, state, or federal law in admission, treatment, or access to, or employment in, its programs and activities.

Discrimination and harassment are contrary to the values and standards of the Louisburg College community; are incompatible with the safe, healthy environment that the Louisburg College community expects and deserves and will not be tolerated.  Louisburg College is committed to providing programs, activities, and an education and work environment free from discrimination and harassment.  Louisburg College is also committed to fostering a community that promotes prompt reporting and fair and timely resolution of those behaviors.

Title IX Coordinator:

Inquiries concerning discrimination or harassment on the basis of sex may be referred to Louisburg College’s Title IX Coordinator, Ronald Shidemantle, Dean of Students.

Confidential Resources:

In addition to the Title IX Coordinator, Louisburg College has designated the following employees as individuals with the authority to institute corrective measures on behalf of Louisburg College: Executive Vice President for Enrollment, Director of Human Resources, and Title IX Investigators. Accordingly, these employees are required to report discrimination and harassment on the basis of sex to the Title IX Coordinator.

Additionally, Louisburg College has designated the following employees as confidential resources for students:

Joel Porter Counseling Center Fonda Porter
Associate Dean of Health & Wellness
(919) 497-3205
College Chaplain Michael Safley
Chaplain
(919) 497-3231 
Campus Health Clinic  Ann O'Malley
Health Clinic Nurse
(919) 497-1399

  

Information about sex discrimination or harassment shared with these confidential resources typically will not be reported to other Louisburg College personnel (including the Title IX Coordinator), to the Respondent, or to others, unless the disclosing individual gives their consent to the disclosure or the law requires it (as may be the case with abuse involving a minor or under conditions involving imminent physical harm, for example). (Confidential resources may report non-identifying statistical information to the Title IX Coordinator for record keeping and compliance purposes.)

Louisburg College will address allegations of sex discrimination and harassment appropriately no matter the length of time that has passed since the alleged conduct. However, Louisburg College strongly encourages prompt reporting to preserve evidence for a potential legal or disciplinary proceeding. Delay may compromise the ability to investigate, particularly if the individuals involved in the alleged conduct are no longer Louisburg College students or employees.
