Title IX is a federal law that prohibits any form of discrimination based on a person's gender.
This specifically means that Title IX prohibits incidents such as: sexual assault or misconduct, sexual harassment, domestic violence or dating violence, stalking, or discrimination based on pregnancy, among others.
Title IX requires that a university, once placed on notice, must review and respond to the incidents. Read more about examples of Title IX concerns.

The Title IX Coordinator works with university administration, departments, students, faculty, staff, campus police and other support services to ensure that university policies and programs foster a campus community free of illegal gender discrimination and sexual violence.
