Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It states:
“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, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R., Part 106)
Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, and sexual violence.
While it is often associated with athletics programs, the Title IX law is much broader and applies to many programs at SUNY Cortland. Oversight of campus-wide compliance with Title IX is the primary responsibility of the SUNY Cortland Title IX Coordinator. Contact information is listed below.
