Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972
Title IX is a federal law that applies to educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance and prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in an educational institution’s programs or activities (both on
and off campus). Title IX protects app people regardless of their gender or gender identity from sex discrimination. Title IX requires institutions to take necessary steps to prevent sexual assault on their campuses, and to respond promptly and effectively when an assault is reported. The Clery Act requires colleges and universities to report annual statistics on crime, including sexual assault and rape, on or near campuses, and to develop and disseminate prevention policies. The Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) which includes the Campus SaVe Act clarifies that “sexual violence” includes domestic violence, dating violence and stalking, which must be included in campus Clery reports, and also requires that institutional policies address and prevent sexual violence through training, education, and certain disciplinary procedures.
