What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education programs or activities that receive federal funding, including athletic programs.  Title IX holds schools liable for sex discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual assault.

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, rape, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
