What is Title IX?

Sexual violence that occurs in the educational setting (on or off campus) implicates a federal civil rights law called Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities and which triggers certain responsibilities on the part of the University. Educational institutions that receive federal financial assistance are covered by Title IX. Since Millersville University is one of those institutions, ALL students are covered by Title IX.
