Sex Discrimination, Harassment, and Misconduct
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 the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." --Legal Citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX).
The purpose of Title IX is to insure equal access and fairness for men and women with regards to athletics, employment, admissions, financial aid, publications, educational programs, and student rights.
Sexual discrimination interferes with an individual's employment or educational performance and has the purpose or effect of denying or limiting an individual's ability to participate in or benefit from the school's programs. Sexual discrimination includes sexual harassment, which also includes sexual violence.
Definition of Terms:
Sexual Discrimination: inequitable treatment of individuals on the basis of gender.
Sexual Harassment: unwelcome, gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it has the effect of interfering with, denying or limiting someone’s ability to participate in a or benefit from the university’s educational program and/or activities, and is based on power differential (quid pro quo), the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.
Sexual Misconduct: a form of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX. Sexual misconduct refers to “physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving consent due to the victim’s use or drugs or alcohol. An individual also may be unable to give consent due to an intellectual or other disability.” Sexual misconduct includes rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion.
