Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.

“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.”

Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment or sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery and/or sexual coercion.

Faculty, staff, and administrators who receive complaints or have knowledge of sexual harassment or any form of sexual violence are obligated to report complaints to one of the Title IX Deputy Coordinators/Title IX Coordinator below.
