Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. “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.” AUC’s anti-harassment and non-discrimination policy is based on the principles outlined in Title IX.

Information About the Office
The Title IX Coordinator is the point of contact for receiving harassment and discrimination complaints. The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the University's response to these complaints. By definition, a Title IX coordinator is a neutral party and doesn't serve as an advocate for the complainant or the respondent.
The office is located in the administrative building, ground floor, room G011.
Anyone can submit reports to the Office of Institutional Equity. This includes students, faculty, staff and alumni.
You may submit reports online through our online reporting form. You may also submit complaints or any questions to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or request in person.
Confidentiality is a very important aspect of this policy. You may request to keep your identity confidential once submitting their complaints. Confidentiality requests may limit the ability of investigation.
Individuals can submit anonymous reports through our reporting channels. While this may limit the office’s ability to respond as appropriate and to investigate anonymous or third-party reports, we encourage individuals to submit as much detailed information as possible. It is important to note that the University will not impose disciplinary actions based solely on an anonymous complaint that cannot be supported by other evidence.
