What Is Title IX?

Title IX is part of the Education Amendments of 1972 and is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education. This federal law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Title IX applies to all participants of such programs, including students, and faculty/staff members.

Title IX helps to foster safe and respectful College environment that better protect students, faculty and staff from incidents of sex-based discrimination and sexual harassment, including sexual violence, relationship violence and abuse.

The College is obligated to provide a prompt, thorough and equitable investigation of any report of sex-based discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence. This obligation remains even in the absence of a formal complaint.
