“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.
Title IX is a federal law that protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of sex in an educational program or activity that is federally funded. Under Title IX, sexual discrimination includes harassment. Harassment can be in the form of verbal or written; sexual assault; stalking; and dating or domestic violence.
Retaliation against an individual for alleging a violation of their civil rights, supporting a complainant, or for assisting in providing information relevant to a claim is considered a violation of Title IX.
