Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits excluding an individual from participating in educational programs and activities based on that person’s sex, gender identity and expression, and sexual orientation. Sexual and gender-based harassment (including sexual assault and rape) are forms of such discrimination.
