What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
  • “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded form participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” – Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
  • 1. Title IX is a landmark federal civil rights bill that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
    2. Title IX does not apply to female students only.
    3. Schools must be proactive in ensuring that your campus is free of sex discrimination.
    4. Schools must have an established procedure for handling complaints of sex discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual violence.
    5. Schools must take immediate action to ensure a complainant-victim can continue their education free of ongoing sex discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual violence.
    6. Schools may not retaliate against someone filing a complaint and must keep a complainant-victim safe from other retaliatory harassment or behavior.
    7. Schools can issue a no contact directive under Title IX to prevent the accused student from approaching or interacting with you.
    8. In cases of sexual violence, schools are prohibited from encouraging or allowing mediation (rather than a formal hearing) of the complaint.
    9. Schools cannot discourage you from continuing your education.
