Title IX/Pregnancy Procedure Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (including pregnancy and parental status) in educational programs and activities. If a student has any questions or concerns regarding discrimination based on sex, they are asked to contact the Equity Coordinators, Sandy Bruns (Director of Human Resources) or Beth Frankenstein (Directory Secondary Programs and Student Development). Missing Student Notification Policy As an institution that provides on-campus student housing, Northwest Iowa Community College has a policy regarding missing student notification procedures for students who reside in on-campus student housing facilities pursuant to Federal Register §668.46(h)—Institutional security policies and crime statistics. Students, employees, and other persons should report to the Coordinator of Residence Life if a student has been missing for 24 hours. The Coordinator of Residence Life shall immediately notify the Vice President of Student & Academic Services or designee of any student who has not been seen on campus, who cannot be reached by acquaintances, and for whom concern has been expressed regarding the student’s safety and well-being by an acquaintance, for a period of more than 24 hours. The Vice President of Student & Academic Services or designee shall contact the Sheldon Law Enforcement Center to file a missing person’s report no later than 24 hours after the time the student is determined missing. At residence life orientation, students have the option of identifying a contact person or persons whom the institution shall notify within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing if the student has been determined missing by the institutional police or campus security department, or the local law enforcement agency. Students will be advised that if they are under 18 years of age and not emancipated, the institution must notify a custodial parent or guardian within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing, in addition to notifying any additional contact person designated by the student; and that the institution will notify the local law enforcement agency within 24 hours of the determination that the student is missing, unless the local law enforcement agency was the entity that made the determination that the student is missing. If a student is reported missing, the Vice President of Student & Academic Services or designee shall contact the student’s emergency contact, filed in the Registrar’s Office, within 24 hours of the time the report was made that the student is missing.
