Resources for Support

Campus Resources

Counseling and Student Support Services:

KCC provides free counseling and student support services to students who need extra support. Students sometimes get overwhelmed with balancing life and school, and a support specialist or counselor can help provide options and support for success. Help is available for test anxiety, school stress, home stress, and whatever else may be challenging a student's academic or personal success. At this time, KCC lacks a dedicated counselor. We are working with local agencies to place a new counselor on campus. Once a new counselor is in place, contact information will be updated on this page.

Sexual Misconduct and Discrimination (Title IX):

Title IX provides protection against gender-based discrimination. Klamath Community College is committed to creating a learning and working environment that ensures equal access and opportunity to education and resources for all students, free of bias, discrimination, and harassment. This includes:

  • Sexual assault/misconduct
  • Sexual harassment
  • Domestic and dating violence
  • Stalking
  • Gender discrimination (including gender-based bullying)
  • Discrimination against pregnant and parenting students
  • Hazing
  • Retaliation against reporters of any of the above

KCC understands that sexual violence can undermine students’ academic success, and we encourage students who have experienced any form of sexual misconduct or discrimination to  get the support they need by talking to someone about their experience.

If you have experienced or observed sexual violence/assault, harassment, or discrimination of any kind, you can make a report here, or you may contact the Manager of Human Resources at titleIX@klamathcc.edu.
