“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.” — Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.


Lower Columbia College is committed to providing a healthy and productive environment for students to learn and employees to work. We do not tolerate violent, harassing, threatening, or intimidating behavior toward students, staff, faculty, or visitors. Students learn and employees work best when they know they have a supportive environment in which to do so.

The safety of our students, staff, faculty, and visitors is our highest priority. Lower Columbia College offers campus community professional staff, resources, training, and policies that help ensure a safe environment on and off campus. With these people, tools, and means in place, we are confident we have created a college in which people can learn and work at their best.
