Title IX

Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that states:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title IX prohibits discrimination based on a person's sex and/or sexual orientation in all university programs, including, but not limited to: academics, admissions, athletics, counseling, employment, financial aid, housing, student access, student conduct, and student organizations.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of discrimination prohibited by Title IX, as well as retaliation against those making or participating in complaints of sex based discrimination.
