Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972

Title IX is a law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Specifically, the law provides that no person 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.”

This law requires federally funded education institutions (e.g., school districts and colleges or universities) or programs (e.g., 4-H) to widely disseminate information on Title IX protections against discrimination on the basis of sex and the name address, and telephone number, or other contact information of the designated Title IX Coordinator.
