Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 was the first comprehensive federal law to prohibit sex discrimination against students and employees of educational institutions. The law benefits both males and females and requires educational institutions to maintain policies, practices and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based on sex. Under this law, males and females are expected to receive fair and equal treatment in all areas of public education, including athletics.
While Title IX is most commonly known for promoting gender equality in sports, it also protects against sex-based harassment or violence. If you have questions about Title IX, or would like to report suspected sex-based discrimination, harassment or violence, please contact our Title IX coordinator, Tom Zahrt, at (269) 250-9299, or Jenny Sell, (269) 250-9214.
