Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. Members of Honolulu Community College, guests, and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of sex/gender harassment, discrimination and misconduct, examples of which can include acts of sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. All members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others.
The Title IX Coordinator has the specific responsibility to provide prompt and effective response to all complaints of sex discrimination or harassment for faculty, staff and students.
The Title IX Coordinator reports directly to the Chancellor of the college. Questions regarding Title IX should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. Anyone wishing to make a report relating to sex discrimination or harassment may do so by reporting the concern to the college's Title IX Coordinator.

We are aware that people who are surviving violence may be experiencing increased isolation and danger caused by confinement, economic stress and health insecurity. CSAP advocates will continue to be available to our Oʻahu students and employees Monday-Friday 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM by phone and email. However, as individual CSAP advocates have new modified schedules, if you would like to work with a specific advocate, please refer to the CSAP advocate schedule and contact list (subject to change).
