About Title IX
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads:
"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." -Legal Citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)
Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual violence. While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than Athletics and applies to all programs at the university. While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility at Chico State, the Title IX Coordinator has primary responsibility for Title IX compliance. Duties and responsibilities are: monitoring and oversight of overall implementation of Title IX Compliance at the University; including coordination of training and education communications; and coordination with Student Affairs, Human Resources and Faculty Affairs on the processing of complaints and grievances alleging discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation to the extent they fall under Title IX and other members of the University community.
