Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination based on sex (including sexual harassment, sexual violence and gender-based harassment) in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Some key issue areas in which recipients have Title IX obligations are: recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; athletics; sex-based harassment; treatment of pregnant and parenting students; discipline; single-sex education; and employment.

Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or made charges, testified or participated in any complaint action under Title IX. For a recipient to retaliate in any way is considered a violation of Title IX.
