Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972  is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads 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.

The University is committed to providing an educational and working environment for its students, faculty, and staff that is free from sex and gender discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual misconduct, interpersonal violence (including domestic violence and dating violence), and stalking. The University encourages individuals to promptly report incidents to the University Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Title IX Coordinators.

Title IX related incidents include many types of behaviors that are defined and governed by University policies. Listed below are some important definitions, however the full list of detailed definitions can be found in the General Information Catalog, Appendix D: Policy on Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking or the Handbook of Operating Procedures, 3-3031 Policy on Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Sexual Misconduct, Interpersonal Violence, and Stalking.
