Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law passed in 1972 under the Education Amendments Act. Title IX aims to prevent gender discrimination in educational programs or activities that receive federal funding. Title IX is best known for its impact on women’s sports, but its reach extends beyond athletics into other areas of education.

What is the goal of Title IX?

The primary goal of Title IX is to create equal opportunities for men and women in educational institutions — schools must offer the same opportunities, resources, and supports for all students.

Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment and assault. All schools must have procedures to prevent and respond to sexual misconduct and investigate any complaints made under Title IX. Title IX also protects students, staff, faculty, and visitors from retaliation after reporting discrimination, harassment, or assault.

Who is covered under Title IX?

Title IX protects students, staff, faculty, volunteers, contractors, visitors, program participants, and anyone seeking to be involved in programs or activities at an educational institution.
