Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education.

It reads:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

-- Citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX).

Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault.

While often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics. It applies to other programs at Susquehanna University, including academics and administration, as well as athletics.
