Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities. All public and private elementary and secondary schools, school districts, colleges, and universities (hereinafter “schools”) receiving any Federal funds must comply with Title IX. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, and stalking.

In accordance with Title IX regulations, the University has designated Adrienne D. Matthews, Assistant Vice President, Office of Student Service, as the University’s Title IX Coordinator. Pamela Holiday, Executive Director of Employee Services has been appointed as the Deputy Title IX Coordinator. They are charged with monitoring compliance with these regulations. Questions regarding the University’s Title IX policy, as well as concerns and complaints of non-compliance, may be directed to them.

If you are a student or employee who believes you have been subjected to sex discrimination under the University’s Title IX policy, you may report such misconduct or file a formal complaint with the Title IX Coordinator.
