Message from Title IX Coordinator

Yolanda DennisSafety concerns all students, and one of the most alarming dangers young adults must face on college campuses is the risk of sexual assault. Here at Massasoit Community College, we are taking steps to minimize that risk and provide our students, faculty and staff preventative measures that will work towards eliminating sexual violence at our campuses. Breaking the silence on our college campuses, continuing to have conversations about sexual crimes, and training the campus community in response to a sexual assault is crucial to educating our campus community towards a safe campus climate. An important role of my of position as Title IX Coordinator is to monitor and oversee the College’s compliance with Title IX and related laws in the prevention of sexual harassment and discrimination, including administrating an investigative process that protects the safety of victims. I invite all of you to give me the opportunity to work with you at Massasoit Community College to address sexual misconduct, which has impacted our college students nationwide.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding Massasoit Community College’s sexual misconduct policy, campus prevention and support systems, please contact me at ydennis@massasoit.mass.edu or call 508-588-9100 x1309.
