Campus SAVE Act (Title IX)

CVTC strives to provide a safe environment in which students can pursue their education free from the detrimental effects of sexual misconduct. Title IX of the Higher Education Act of 1972 ("Title IX") ensures the College does not discriminate on the basis of sex in its education programs and the Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act (SAVE) of 2013 and Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) ensures that colleges and universities implement policies and programs to prevent sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking.

Therefore, the College seeks to educate students, faculty and staff about these issues and to provide a means of recourse for those who believe they have experienced such misconduct.
