"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 is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. In complying with Title IX, Fayetteville State University prohibits discrimination in its programs and activities on the basis of sex.  Additionally, the University prohibits and will not tolerate sex discrimination as it pertains to sexual harassment and sexual misconduct, including but not limited to sexual violence or assaults (as defined below). The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) also requires the University to address sexual violence, interpersonal (dating) violence, and stalking.
