What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination in educational programs and activities.
"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." (Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972). In 2011, the Department of Education added requirements for Title IX to cover sexual violence. A number of acts fall into the category of sexual violence, including rape, sexual assault, sexual battery and sexual coercion.
The Emmanuel College community wants you to know your rights regarding Title IX and to "Speak Up" if you experience sexual assault, harassment, or discrimination. Watch our video below.
