“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…”
—20 U.S.C. § 1681
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination based on gender in educational programs, which receive federal financial assistance. Athletics are one component of Title IX. Other programs and activities which may be included are: recruitment, admissions, financial aid, and scholarships; course offerings and access; hiring and retention; and, benefits and leave. Title IX also protects students and employees, both male and female, from unlawful sexual harassment in school programs and activities.
Gallaudet University does not discriminate in its employment or admissions practices or in its educational programs or activities on the basis of sex/gender*. Gallaudet University also prohibits retaliation against any person for opposing discrimination or for participating in or refusing to participate in any discrimination investigation or complaint process internally or externally. Reports of misconduct, questions regarding Title IX, and concerns about non-compliance should be directed to a Title IX Coordinator. For a complete copy of the policy or for more information, please contact the Gallaudet University Title IX Coordinator or the Assistant Secretary of Education within the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).
The Title IX Coordinator monitors compliance with the regulations of this law. Individuals with questions or concerns about Title IX, and/or those who wish to file a complaint of non-compliance, may contact the University’s Title IX Coordinator by making a report found here.
