Title IX

Title IX

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


Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits educational institutions from discriminating on the basis of sex in educational programs or activities. Title IX also requires such institutions to adopt and publish grievance procedures to resolve student and employee complaints alleging discrimination prohibited by Title IX. To ensure compliance with Title IX and in an effort to ensure that employees and students receive prompt and equitable resolution of complaints involving sex discrimination, Fayetteville State has implemented policies and procedures that address complaints of sex discrimination.
