What is Title IX?
Title IX is most commonly associated with equal opportunity for women in athletics. However, it is so much more than that. Title IX is a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funding. While the two most common applications of the law are towards athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to: admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling and medical services, and hiring and employment.
“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.
All members of the university community, guests and visitors have a right to be free from sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct includes but is not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence. If you have concerns or need to report an incident, please contact a Title IX Coordinator or Investigator.
