Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights that prohibits sex-based discrimination in education programs or activities. Download the UH Title IX brochure.
Each member of the campus community is responsible for preventing sexual misconduct and ensuring that the work and academic environments are harassment-free.
The University of Hawai’i Maui College (UHMC) ensures to provide all a safe and respectful learning and working environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of every member of its community, free from harassment, discrimination, and violence. Such an environment is necessary to a healthy learning, working, and living atmosphere because discrimination and harassment undermine human dignity and the positive connection among all members in our UHMC community.
UH Maui College is committed to a policy of nondiscrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, disability, domestic violence, marital status, arrest and court record, and veteran status. (See the University of Hawai’i Statement of Nondiscrimination and Affirmative Action Policy.) Policies and procedures addressing allegations of sex or gender-based discrimination and/or retaliation will be consistent with state and federal law.
As of September 2015, the grievance policy and procedure that UHMC will use to address any allegations of sex discrimination and gender-based violence involving students, employees and/or visitors or third parties at UHMC will be the UH System’s Executive Policy EP 1.204 – Policy and Procedure on Sex Discrimination and Gender-Based Violence.
If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these, the UHMC has faculty, staff and resources to support and assist you, and can also direct you to resources in the community.
