Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX benefits both females and males, and is at the heart of efforts to create gender equitable schools. The law requires educational institutions to maintain policies, practices and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based on sex.

Title IX states:

“No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid.”

Examples of the types of conduct that violates Title IX include, but are not limited to:

  • Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual Assault
  • Domestic Violence
  • Dating Violence
  • Stalking (Gender Based)
  • Failure to provide equal opportunity in athletics
  • Discrimination on the basis of sex in all student services and academic programs. This includes areas such as admissions, financial aid, academic advising, residence life and housing, health services, counseling, registration, and activities related to classroom requirements (such as class projects, grading, etc.)
  • Discrimination on the basis of sex in terms of employment and recruitment consideration or selection
