Title IX


Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is one of several federal laws that address discrimination issues. Many people think of Title IX only in the context of athletics, but athletics is just one of ten areas addressed by the law. Title IX requires colleges/universities that receive federal funds and financial assistance to prohibit discrimination based on gender in all aspects of their education programs and activities.
