Title IX

Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that states:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

Title IX prohibits discrimination based on a person's sex and/or sexual orientation in all university programs, including, but not limited to, academics, admissions, athletics, counseling, employment, financial aid, housing, student access, student conduct, and student organizations.

All people are afforded the right to pursue their educational, personal, and professional aspirations without being subject to discrimination based upon their gender and/or sexual orientation. This includes doing so without suffering the indignities of sexual harassment and sexual violence.

All internal and external stakeholders are responsible for creating and perpetuating a harassment-free environment. For this reason, all students, faculty, staff, and third parties are encouraged to learn and understand Davenport University's student code in regards to sexual harassment and sexual assault.
