This policy provides for procedures that ensure National Park College’s compliance with federal Title IX guidelines.


Members of the College community, guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual discrimination, harassment or violence, which means that all members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.


Title IX protects the College community from sexual harassment in a school’s education programs and activities. This means that Title IX protects the College community in connection with all academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs of the school, whether those programs take place in a school’s facilities, in college transportation, at a class or training program sponsored by the school at another location, or elsewhere.


Interim Policy Statement: 

National Park College prohibits sex-based misconduct within the College’s Educational Programs and activities including quid pro quo harassment by a school’s employee; any unwelcome conduct that is determined to be so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive that it excludes or denies a person equal educational access to any educational program or activity; any instance of sexual assault (as defined by the Clery Act) dating violence, domestic violence, or stalking as defined in the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). This policy applies to persons within all NPC education programs or activities, both on and off-campus, within the United States. The College will use the “preponderance of evidence” as the standard of proof.


This policy and associated procedures will be maintained and reviewed by the campus’ Title IX Coordinator and his/her deputies.
