Title IX:  Assuring Gender Equity in Education

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational programs or activity receiving federal financial assistance." - From the preamble to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

What is Title IX?


Title IX was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination against students and employees of educational institutions. Title IX benefits both males and females, and is at the heart of efforts to create gender equitable schools.  The law requires educational institutions to maintain policies, practices and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based on sex. Under this law, males and females are expected to receive fair and equal treatment in all arenas of public schooling.
  • recruitment,
  • admissions,
  • educational programs and activities,
  • course offerings and access,
  • counseling,
  • employment assistance,
  • facilities and housing,
  • health and insurance benefits,
  • marital and parental status,
  • scholarships,
  • sexual harassment, and
  • athletics.
