Title IX Information

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972.  This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. 


Title IX states that: 

"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." 

Title IX applies to any institution receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Education, including state and local educational agencies.  Educational programs and activities that receive federal funds from the Department of Education must operate in a nondiscriminatory manner.  Also, a recipient may not retaliate against any person for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy, or because a person made charges, testified, or participated in any complaint action under Title IX.
