Pandemic Response Plan
College officials are always alert to the potential for emergency events that may arise around the world which create concerns for our students, employees, and others in the college community. As a result, the college has processes in place in anticipation of the possible need to respond to the impact of events such as a pandemic.
In the case of the potential health concerns of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the college refers to health and other public safety experts to help shape an appropriate response. The Pandemic Response Plan addresses messaging, contingency planning, and other actions. MCC also has structures in place to support students and employees and to monitor and inform the college community as necessary. For questions regarding the Pandemic Response Plan contact Carolyn Hamblin or Danette Bristle. For updated actions, the college takes please visit the web page Coronavirus (COVID-19): Facts not Fear.
Welcome to the Title IX website, a resource on sexual misconduct for students, faculty, staff, and visitors who are part of the Mohave Community College community. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states: “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance”.
Mohave Community College (MCC) is committed to providing a learning and working environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect in an environment free of sexual misconduct and discrimination. Sexual discrimination violates an individual’s fundamental rights and personal dignity. MCC considers sexual discrimination in all its forms to be a serious offense. This resource refers to all forms of sexual discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual violence by employees, students, or third parties. (Title 20 U.S.C. Sections 1681-1688)
Title IX and the Sexual Misconduct Policy
The college prohibits all forms of sexual misconduct by students and employees.
MCC Policy #5.112
Who can I contact about Sexual Misconduct?
Tell a trusted person about the incident. Contact someone from MCC’s Title IX Team listed to the right. You may also contact a counselor through the Student Support Program via phone (1-866-329-4148) or the internet (jics.mohave.edu). The Community Resource Guide is another helpful tool.
Safety at MCC
We are very proud of our reputation as a “safe place to be.”
Safety requires constant vigilance by the college, students, staff, and all those using college facilities or resources. In case of emergency, contact persons can be reached by calling your campus switchboard. (Dial 0 from any campus telephone.)
As is required by the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), Mohave Community College has established procedures for the gathering of statistics on certain categories of crimes and arrests.
Specifically, MCC is required to compile statistics by campus for crimes which include sexual offenses (forcible or non-forcible), robbery (under confrontational circumstances), burglary, aggravated assault and motor vehicle theft, and any liquor law violations (other than drunkenness or driving while intoxicated), illegal drug violations, and weapon charges. Statistics in these areas are compiled by the Vice President of Student and Community Engagement and are maintained on an annual basis for forwarding to the federal government. Click here to view the MCC Annual Security Report.
MCC has established procedures to be followed relative to the locking and unlocking of classrooms and other college buildings located on each of its campuses. These procedures are supervised by the campus deans.
Security for MCC campuses is provided by law enforcement agencies. Students and employees witnessing crimes or who are victimized in the commission of a crime are strongly encouraged to report all such actions to appropriate local law enforcement agencies and the campus dean.
MCC’s efforts to educate employees and students about crime awareness and prevention include those procedures described here and will be supplemented by notices as may be required to call attention to specific cases of real or potential threats affecting individual campuses or college-operated facilities.
These notices will be distributed on an as-needed basis and posted in public places in an attempt to ensure sufficient warning to students and others using college facilities. Additionally, copies of such notices will be provided to faculty members (both resident and associate) and read out loud in classes at affected locations.
If a student holds a valid Order of Protection, the student should immediately notify the local Campus Dean’s Office. If there is reason to believe that a person named in the Order of Protection has violated the court order while on an MCC campus, the Campus Dean’s Office should be notified and he or she will assist the student in reporting the incident to the local law enforcement.
All students and employees are encouraged to be aware of situations that may result in a sex offense (forced or non-forced) involving both known and unknown assailants. Students or others found to have engaged in acts which constitute sexual assault, attempted sexual assault, or other related sex crimes, whether forced or non-forced, will be subject to appropriate disciplinary and legal process to the fullest extent allowed by law.
In instances where students are involved in disciplinary procedures, both the accused and accusers are entitled to the same opportunities for representation and shall be informed of the outcome of any disciplinary procedure related to such alleged assaults.
