What is Title IX?
Title IX protects Students, Faculty and Staff
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil
rights law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in
education programs, including athletic programs, or activities that
receive federal funding.
“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, rape, and sexual assault.
