Title IX and SB-493

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all education programs and activities operated by the District and its three colleges. This means that members of our college community—including employees, students, guests, and visitors—have the right to be free from sexual misconduct and any form of sexual harassment and gender-based discrimination and violence. 

SB-493 provides additional rights to students in California Institutions of Higher Education for Sexual Harassment allegations.

Moorpark College, Oxnard College, Ventura College, and the Ventura County Community College District do not tolerate sexual misconduct. 

This includes but is not limited to 

  • Sexual harassment (in person, by text, or online) 

  • Domestic violence 

  • Dating violence 

  • Sexual assault 

  • Sexual stalking 

  • Gender-based hate crimes
