Sexual Misconduct and Harassment Prevention

Every member of the York College community, including students, employees and visitors, deserves the opportunity to live, learn and work free from Sexual Misconduct (sexual harassment, gender-based harassment and sexual violence).

Title IX Policy

York College is committed to maintaining a fair and equal environment for both its employees and student body, consistent with the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments Acts of 1972, which state that:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to, discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance…”

Anyone – of any gender, sexual orientation, religious affiliation, citizenship status, race, class or educational level – can suffer from sexual harassment, including sexual violence. We want to make sure students understand their rights related to sexual harassment and assault.  Any student who believes he or she has been discriminated against on the basis of gender may direct all inquiries, concerns, and complaints to the Title IX Coordinator, Alicia Franqui, Esq. (AFranqui@york.cuny.edu).   The Office of Diversity and Compliance is located in the Academic Core Building, Room 2H04.
