What is Title IX?
Title IX is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs. Under Title IX, schools ranging from K–12 to private universities must make sure that all students have equal access to education based on sex. This includes proactively responding to claims of sexual assault and harassment.
