Know Your IX

This organization of survivors and advocates provides great information on Title IX at universities.  

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded educational programs and activities.

Title IX is commonly thought of as pertaining only to athletics. However, the law is actually much broader. Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in all programs and activities of a university.

In 2011, the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) released guidance on Title IX as it relates to sexual assault and sexual violence on college campuses.  The Office of Equity and Inclusion coordinates all University efforts around Title IX compliance, including investigation of complaints and education for campus.
