Title IX regarding pregnancy and childbirth

Aug 17, 2018

Important notice to students regarding your rights under Title IX regarding pregnancy and childbirth

You should know that Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") protects you from discrimination based on pregnancy, childbirth, and birth-related conditions, including recovery from childbirth. The College has an obligation under Title IX to make accommodations such as excusing absences because of pregnancy and childbirth, and allowing students to make up assignments, exams, and classroom exercises missed due to pregnancy or birth-related conditions.

If you need such an accommodation because of your pregnancy or birth-related condition, discuss it as soon as possible with your instructor. Your instructor should contact the College's Title IX coordinator to consult on the appropriate accommodation. You can also directly contact the College's Title IX Coordinator.

Dean Lorraine Smith (559.244.2604; is the College's Title IX Coordinator. Instructional faculty, counselors, and administrators are expected to promptly notify and consult with the College's Title IX Coordinator upon receipt of any accommodation request from a student because of pregnancy or birth-related conditions.
