Title IX Information
The law states that "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.” The amendment in 1987 expanded the definition of program or activity to include all the operations of an educational institution, governmental entity or private employer that receives federal funds.
Title IX forbids sex discrimination in all university student services and academic programs including, but not limited to, admissions, financial aid, academic advising, housing, athletics, recreational services, college residential life programs, health services, counseling and psychological services, Registrar's office, classroom assignments, grading and discipline. Title IX also forbids discrimination because of sex in employment and recruitment consideration or selection, whether full time or part time, under any education program or activity operated by an institution receiving or benefiting from federal financial assistance ("recipient").
Legislature Affecting Title IX
- AB 1433, State Law Mandatory Reporting: Violent crime, hate crime, or sexual assault whether committed on campus, or off-campus.
- SB 967 Affirmative Consent Law: Affirmative Consent means, “Affirmative, conscious, and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity.”
