Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College, which includes all offices under its jurisdiction, reaffirms its policy for Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) not to discriminate against or exclude from participation in any benefits or activities, any person, either an employee or a member of the student body, on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, veteran’s status, political belief or affiliation, or any other non-merit factor in any employment practice, in accordance with Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; Executive Order 11246: Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; Vietnam Era Veterans’ Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974; and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
In accordance with the LCTCS Power Based Violence / Sexual Misconduct policy and LCTCS Title IX Grievances Procedures, Northwest Louisiana Technical College (NLTCC) is committed to creating and maintaining an environment in which sexual violence against men and women is not tolerated. Intervening in such instances helps to foster a safe environment for all, while sending a message that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated and is unacceptable in our community. NLTCC is a college community where respect, consent and responsibility are valued. We are all responsible for ensuring that no one has to endure sexual violence of any sort.
NLTCC has trained Confidential Advisors who serve to aid persons involved in a sexual misconduct complaint in the resolution process as a confidential resource.  See current list of Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College Title IX Confidential Advisors below.
  1. Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
  2. Title IX does not apply to female students only.
  3. NLTCC must take immediate action to ensure a complainant-victim can continue their education free of ongoing sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence.
  4. NLTCC must have an established procedure for handling complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.
  5. NLTCC can issue a no contact directive under Title IX to prevent the accused student from approaching or interacting with you.
  6. NLTCC may not retaliate against someone filing a complaint and must keep a complainant-victim safe from other retaliatory harassment or behavior.
  7. NLTCC must be proactive in ensuring that your campus is free of sex discrimination.
  8. In cases of sexual violence, schools are prohibited from encouraging or allowing mediation of the complaint.
  9. NLTCC should not make survivors pay the cost of certain accommodations that they require in order to continue their education after experiencing violence.


In accordance with the requirements of the titles of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended in 1992, Northwest Louisiana Technical Community College will not exclude or discriminate against any individual with a disability from the full attainment and access to post-secondary education, and equal enjoyment of its services and facilities. NLTCC does not discriminate on the basis of disability, and will provide reasonable accommodations in its policies, practices, or procedures when such modifications are necessary to afford its services and facilities to individuals with disabilities, unless the modifications would fundamentally alter the nature of its services. NLTCC policy also assures equal opportunity for all qualified persons in admission or participation in, or employment in the activities through which the NLTCC operates.
NLTCC maintains that regulations that prohibit exclusion and discrimination on the basis of disability may necessitate different or special treatment of persons with disabilities. Services and benefits should be equally as effective or equivalent to those provided to others. Services and benefits to persons with disabilities must be in the most integrated setting appropriate to the persons' needs in order to be non- discriminatory.
