Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the sex or gender of students and employees at educational institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX states, “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.” (20 U.S.C. § 1681)."

Title IX is best known for ensuring gender equity in collegiate athletics, but it also broadly prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender or sex in any education program or activity. Sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, and stalking also fall under the purview of Title IX. The 50th anniversary of the passage of Title IX is on June 23, 2022.
