What is Title IX?
“Title IX” refers to Title IX of the Educational amendments act of 1972, which amended the Civil rights Act of 1964, and provides:
“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…”. 20 USC 1681.
Title IX prohibits colleges, such as Eastern Oregon University (EOU), from discrimination on the basis of sex in the provision of its educational and co-curricular programs. Title IX has received most of its attention in its application to college and high school athletics. However, Title IX applies to all programs and services at federally funded colleges, with few exceptions.
