The Moraine Valley community is encouraged to report alleged incidents of sex-based misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator(s) directly. The College has designated a Title IX Coordinator for students and a Title IX Coordinator for employees. If a student is involved as either the alleged victim or the reported perpetrator of conduct that could constitute sex-based misconduct, contact the Title IX Coordinator for students. If only employees are involved as both the alleged victim and the reported perpetrator of conduct that could constitute sex-based misconduct, contact the Title IX Coordinator for employees. They will coordinate the response.
