What is Title IX?
Title IX was passed June 23, 1972. It is a federal law that prohibits gender discrimination in any educational program or activity at any educational institution that is a recipient of federal funds. The law stated “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...” Athletics, drama, band and other extracurricular student activities are considered to be educational programs under this law. Title IX also prohibits all forms of gender discrimination in federally funded educational institutions, including sexual harassment, discrimination in admissions and counseling, discrimination against married or pregnant students.
