ASICollege Title IX Statement

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities by recipients of federal financial assistance.  Specifically, the Title IX regulations require the school to designate a Title IX coordinator, adopt and disseminate a nondiscrimination policy, and put grievance procedures in place to address complaints of discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities. Hence, in compliance with the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the school publishes the following statement:

Notice of Non Discrimination

Advance Science International College (ASICollege) does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities and provides equal access to the public.

Title IX Coordinators

The following school employees has been designated to addressing complaints of discrimination, verbal or written, on the basis of sex that could occur in the school’s educational programs and activities, in the United States:

Maria A. Hernandez, BSEd

Admission Director
Title IX Coordinator
5190 NW 167 St, Suite 200, Miami Lakes, FL 33014
305.626.6002
mhernadez@asicollege.edu

Caridad F. Padron, NT, BSS.

Student Services Officer
Deputy Title IX Coordinator
5190 NW 167 St, Suite 200, Miami Lakes, FL 33014
305.626.6007
cpadron@asicollege.edu


The above specially trained Title IX coordinators will respond promptly to a complainant by offering supportive measures and confidentially discussing with the complainant the option of filing a formal complaint. A verbal or written report to the Title IX Coordinators may also be made by any third party, such as the alleged complainant’s parent or friend. Giving both Title IX Coordinators notice of sexual harassment that elicits the school’s response obligations does not require scheduling an in-person appointment with the Title IX Coordinators or Deputy. However, the credibility of any party, as well as ultimate conclusions about responsibility for sexual harassment, must not be prejudged and must be based on objective evaluation of the relevant evidence in each particular case.

 

About Resolving Allegations of Conduct Elsewhere 

 

According to § 106.45(b)(10)(i)(D), (30198), nothing in the Title IV final regulations prohibits ASICollege resolving allegations of conduct outside the school’s education program or activity by applying the same grievance process required under § 106.45 for formal complaints of Title IX sexual harassment, even though such a process would not be required under Title IX or these final regulations. Further more the current final regulations do not impose a geographic test or draw a distinction between on-campus misconduct and off-campus misconduct.  Consequently, the school will not inefficiently extricate conduct occurring outside an education program or activity from conduct occurring in an education program or activity arising from the same facts or circumstances in order to meet the recipient’s obligations with respect to the latter.

 

Furthermore, nothing prevents the school from initiating a student conduct proceeding or offering supportive measures to students affected by sexual harassment that occurs outside the ASICollege’s education program or activity.  If a sexual assault event occurs against a student outside of any school education program or activity, and the student later experiences Title IX sexual harassment in an school education program or activity, the Title IX coordinators, having actual knowledge of such sexual harassment in the education program or activity, will respond promptly.

 

Outside the Ambit of Title IX

Title IX is not the exclusive remedy for sexual misconduct or traumatic events that may affect students. As to misconduct that falls outside the ambit of Title IX, nothing precludes the school from vigorously addressing misconduct (sexual or otherwise) that occurs outside the scope of Title IX or from offering supportive measures to students and individuals impacted by misconduct or trauma even when Title IX and its implementing regulations do not require such actions.



In compliance with § 106.45(b)(10)(i)(D) materials used by the school to train all its Title IX personnel are posted on this website. These ensures that ASICollege’s students and employees, and the public, understand the scope of the school’s education program or activity for purposes of Title IX.
