 (Revised July 2013)



“Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance.” (Department of Education Office of Civil Rights)


Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination and therefore prohibited under Title IX.  “Sexual harassment is conduct that is  

  • Sexual in nature
  • Unwelcomed, and
  • Denies or limits a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from a school’s education program.”   (Department of Education Office of Civil Rights)

  • Inappropriate touching, patting, or pinching
  • Physical assault or coerced sexual activity
  • Obscene phone calls, texts, email, or gestures
  • Badgering someone for a date
  • Repeatedly making inappropriate sexual comments or unwanted sexual advances
