Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity.

Title IX protects you from sex discrimination in all university services and programs including, but not limited to: admissions, financial aid, academics, housing, athletics, health services, employment and recruitment.

Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination and therefore prohibited under Title IX. Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.

Any person who believes that discriminatory practices have been engaged in based upon gender may discuss their concerns and file informal or formal complaints of the possible violation of Title IX with the Title IX Coordinator or a Title IX Deputy Coordinator.

Retaliation against individuals who report and/or file complaints of discrimination or harassment, who cooperate in investigations, or who participate in hearings will not be tolerated. Acts of retaliation should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator.
