Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities and extends to employment and admission to institutions that receive federal financial assistance. The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights is the agency charged with enforcing Title IX.
Here is guidance for students who need online help with their Title IX training, and then see below for three special sessions coming up for in-person help on some campuses.
When students log into their Student Center homepage through the myMCCKC portal, there is a box in the upper-right corner marked “Holds.” As shown here, they will see “Need Title IX Training.” (If that doesn’t appear in the holds box, they have already completed the training and have no enrollment hold on their account.)
If a student needs to complete Title IX training, he or she will need to log into Blackboard to access the Title IX link. It takes about 45 minutes to complete online. If students have additional questions or difficulty accessing the link, they can call the MCC Information Center (816.604.1000, then press “1”) or the enrollment center on their campus.
Below are Title IX events hosted on three of the campuses. Students can enjoy a snack while they complete the training and then meet with a student services specialist for any questions related to spring enrollment.
Title IX sessions:
- Wednesday, Dec. 7, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., MCC-Longview Enrollment Center
- Thursday, Dec. 8, 8:30-11 a.m., MCC-Blue River Enrollment Center
- Thursday, Dec. 15, 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., MCC-Penn Valley Enrollment Center
