Title IX protects people from sex discrimination in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Title IX 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.”
Any inquiries regarding the College’s Title IX Policy Against Sex Discrimination should be directed to a Title IX Coordinator identified below. Please feel free to approach any Title IX coordinator on campus regardless of his/her primary area of responsibility.
