Sexual Misconduct and Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a United States law (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972) which prohibits discrimination based on sex in any educational programs that receive funding from the US government. Discrimination based on sex includes sexual harassment or any acts of sexual misconduct. Title IX requires the University, upon becoming aware of any incident of discrimination or sexual misconduct, to respond appropriately to protect and maintain the safety of the University community, including students, faculty, and staff.
