Title IX

Gender Harassment, Assault & Interpersonal Violence

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
- Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

Title IX ensures all students and employees are given equal opportunities in their learning and working environments. A Title IX violation can come in the form of exclusion based on gender, harassment, threats, and/or physical violence.
