Title IX is a key component of a larger set of Educational Amendments passed by Congress in 1972. Though often viewed only as affecting women’s sports at a collegiate level, Title IX offers protection in a variety of ways. Consider This…
- Title IX protects any person from sex-based discrimination, regardless of that person’s real or perceived sex, gender identity, and/or gender expression. However you choose to gender identify, faculty and staff are protected from discrimination, harassment, or violence based on sex.
- Though we view Title IX through a higher education lens, it actually applies to K-12 education as well.
