Title IX Protects You
• What is Title IX? Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a broad federal law prohibiting gender-based discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funds. It prohibits gender-based discrimination in all college programs and activities, including admissions, athletics, employment, housing, financial aid, recruitment, clubs and organizations.
• Title IX protection from discrimination extends to faculty, staff and students. It includes such things as: sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, gender-identity and pregnancy. It also prohibits retaliation against anyone who makes or participates in a complaint.
