Title IX

Title IX is a federal civil rights law that was passed by Congress in 1972 and required equality for both genders in education.  It reads as follows:

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

Title IX is intended to protect both students and employees from sexual and gender-based harassment and sexual violence.  A key provision in new Title IX legislation, updated in 2020, is that schools must take sexual harassment seriously, while also ensuring a fair process for everyone involved.
