“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
—Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act
Title IX’s benefits can be found in promoting equity in academic and athletics programs, preventing hostile environments on the basis of sex, prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual violence, protecting from retaliation and remedying the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.
Every school district and college in the United States is required to have a Title IX Coordinator who oversees implementation, training and compliance with Title IX.
At Transylvania University we work hard to create a campus without violence by educating students, faculty and staff regularly. We offer several programs to encourage our community to speak out when they encounter high-risk situations, and we require all employees to report violent acts so we can prevent further harassment and violence.
To document a concern or an incident that occurred on Transylvania's campus, please review the full Title IX policy.
