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
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.
