What is Title IX?
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational institutions that receive federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment may constitute a form of sex-based discrimination prohibited by Title IX. It is important to understand the definition of sexual harassment includes sexual violence. Stephens College does not tolerate sex- or gender-based discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual violence of any kind.
