What is Title IX
Title IX is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all educational programs, activities, admission and employment.
“No individual 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 of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)
