Title IX


CBD College adheres to all federal and state civil rights laws and regulations prohibiting discrimination in private institutions of higher education.

CBD College does not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment, student, or applicant for admission on the basis of: race, religion, sex, pregnancy (including childbirth, breastfeeding, and related medical conditions), political affiliation, religion, creed, ethnicity, national origin (including ancestry), citizenship status, physical or mental disability (including perceived disability), age, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran or military status (including disabled veteran, recently separated veteran, active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran, and Armed Forces Service Medal veteran), medical condition (including cancer), or any other protected category under applicable local, state, or federal law, including protections for those opposing discrimination or participating in any grievance process on campus, with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or other human rights agencies.

This policy covers nondiscrimination in both employment and access to educational opportunities. Therefore, any member of the CBD College community whose acts deny, deprive, or limit the educational or employment access, benefits, and/or opportunities of any member of the CBD College community, guest, or visitor on the basis of that person’s actual or perceived membership in the protected classes listed above is in violation of CBD College’s policy on nondiscrimination.

When brought to the attention of CBD College, any such discrimination will be promptly and fairly addressed and remedied by CBD College.

The following person has been designated to handle inquiries regarding the College’s non-discrimination policies: Gabriela Bray, Director of Compliance/Title IX Coordinator, gabriela@cbd.edu or call (213) 427-2200


CBD College adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in employment and education. CBD College does not discriminate in its admissions practices, in its employment practices, or in its educational programs or activities on the basis of sex/gender. As a recipient of federal financial assistance for education activities, CBD College is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure that all of its education programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of sex/gender. Sex includes sex, sex stereotypes, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and pregnancy or parenting status.

CBD College also prohibits retaliation against any person opposing discrimination or participating in any discrimination investigation or complaint process internal or external to the institution. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX and by CBD College policy.

Any member of the campus community, guest, or visitor who acts to deny, deprive, or limit the educational, employment, residential, or social access, opportunities and/or benefits of any member of the CBD College community on the basis of sex is in violation of the Equal Opportunity, Harassment and Nondiscrimination Policy.

Any person may report sex discrimination (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to have experienced the conduct), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by email, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator (below). A report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by email.

Questions regarding Title IX, including its application and/or concerns about noncompliance, should be directed to the Title IX Coordinator. For a complete copy of the policy and applicable resolution procedures or for more information, please see below or contact the Title IX Coordinator.
