Title IX (Sexual Misconduct), Discrimination, and Harassment

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination based on sex and gender in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Such programs include recruitment, admissions, financial aid and scholarships, athletics, course offerings and access, hiring and retention, and benefits and leave. Title IX also protects students and employees from unlawful sexual harassment (including sexual violence) in university programs and activities. In compliance with Title IX, the university prohibits discrimination and harassment based on sex in employment as well as in all programs and activities.

The university’s Title IX Coordinator monitors compliance with Title IX and its accompanying regulations. Individuals with questions or concerns about Title IX may contact the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinators. Those who wish to make a report of noncompliance are encouraged to use our Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Misconduct reporting form. Please contact the Title IX Coordinator or Deputy Coordinator if you would like to consult about a report or have questions before you submit a report using the reporting form. 


For more information regarding Title IX, please visit the Title IX resource page.


The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the division of the federal government charged with enforcing compliance with Title IX. Information regarding OCR can be found at: Questions about Title IX may be directed to OCR as well as to the university’s Title IX coordinator or deputy coordinators.
