Coastal Carolina Under Investigation For Title IX Protocol and Retaliation

#Breaking: #CCU under investigation by The United States Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights for violations of #TitleIX protocol and retaliation against those who filed the initial complaint. Title IX is a federal civil right that prohibits sex discrimination in education such as sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence. A coalition of faculty, staff, parents, students and community members from around South  Carolina put together a blog where this information was published in addition to publishing a survey where students and/or employees can submit their experiences to be forwarded to the Office of Civil Rights for review. CCU policies are also condensed and available for review so students and/or employees can determine whether or not their experiences align with Coastal policy and/or federal law.

Neither The Coastal Carolina Student Union nor the coalition play any part in determining the outcome of any complaints submitted via the survey, as the Office of Civil Rights is the governing body. The Coastal Carolina Student Union is, however, encouraging students/employees to participate in the survey in an effort to make Coastal a safe and equitable learning environment for everyone. We are here to help and answer questions however we can, however, cannot provide legal advice nor should anything we post be considered as such. We, as always, encourage dialogue but ask that due to the nature of Title IX and sexual assault, people monitor the rhetoric of their comments. Thank you all so much, please share, spread the word, check out the survey, make better happen.
