Support, Listen, Trust, Report

What is Title IX?

“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 of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act

Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. In compliance with Title IX, the Office of Equity and Compliance receives reports of gender based harassment and/or discrimination regarding students, faculty, staff, or campus visitors. Title IX gives everyone the right to equality in education. Reporting to the Office of Equity and Compliance helps to facilitate a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which educational programs, employment, and activities are free of discrimination and harassment. The University of Alaska sexual misconduct policy applies to students and employees.
