SUNY Cortland Title IX Contacts

SUNY Cortland Title IX Campus Contacts

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. Chief oversight for Title IX issues is the responsibility of the campus Interim Title IX Coordinator, Nan Pasquarello.  For assistance, you may contact the coordinator or any of the designated Title IX deputy coordinators listed below.
