  • Sexual Harassment and Title IX

    Ozark Christian College is committed to a safe, constructive learning and working environment free from any form of discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct. Discriminatory harassment is not only a violation of OCC policy but also a violation of state and federal laws.

    Meet Our Title IX Team

    SuSan Murdock
    Title IX Coordinator

    Ozark is a community honoring the principles of biblical teaching on sexuality. Community members are required to affirm and abide by the biblical teaching that God intends sexual activity to take place within the bond of a monogamous heterosexual marriage.

    OCC will not tolerate sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, or stalking (collectively “Sexual Misconduct”). College officials will take seriously any report of sexual misconduct and take immediate steps to investigate, prevent its recurrence, address its effects, and prohibit retaliation.

    All members of the OCC community have the right to submit a complaint or raise concerns regarding sexual harassment under Title IX Policy without fear of retaliation. To submit a complaint or raise concerns regarding sexual harassment, contact the Title IX Coordinator.
