Title IX–Sexual Harassment and Unlawful Discrimination
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforces, among other statutes, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title IX protects people from discrimination based on sex in educational programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that:
"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."
Beginning July 1st, 2015 the OCR requires that all students and employees participate in annual Title IX training and awareness of unlawful discrimination. OCR vigorously enforces Title IX to ensure that institutions that receive federal financial assistance comply with the law. OCR evaluates, investigates, and resolves complaints alleging sexual harassment and/or unlawful discrimination. OCR also conducts proactive investigations, called compliance reviews, to examine potential systemic violations based on sources of information other than complaints
