Title IX

Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that applies to institutions receiving federal financial assistance. The law protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities and requires institutions to have a policy that outlines its response to reports of sexual harassment or sexual violence.
