Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972

“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.”

Here's how we can help:

  • Resources If you need information on counseling, health services, or related resources, our staff can provide warm referrals to both on- and off-campus providers.
  • Supportive Measures If you need a change in your on campus arrangement, a No-Contact Order with another Millersville affiliate, or other accommodations related to your Title IX concern, we are able to assist with those processes.
  • Reporting If you want to file a formal complaint with the University, MUPD, or another Police department, the Title IX office can walk you through the options available and connect you to appropriate offices. 

The University has designated the following person to assure compliance with Title IX requirements:

Wendy Bowersox
Acting Title IX Coordinator
