What is Title IX?

Although Title IX is commonly associated with sex-based discrimination in athletics, the law is much broader. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that provides:

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

Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in all university programs and activities, including, but not limited to, admissions, recruiting, financial aid, academic programs, student services, counseling and guidance, discipline, class assignment, grading, recreation, athletics, housing, and employment.

Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against people for making or participating in complaints of sex discrimination.

In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, the University of Notre Dame prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all academic and extracurricular programs and activities, including intercollegiate athletic activities. Title IX protects all people, regardless of gender or gender identity, from sexual harassment and sexual violence (including sexual misconduct and sexual assault), which are forms of sex discrimination.

The University has designated the Director of the Office of Institutional Equity as the Title IX Coordinator to oversee the implementation of Title IX, including the responsibility of reviewing Title IX complaints. Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX to University-operated programs and activities should be referred to the Office of Institutional Equity at (574) 631-0444 or equity@nd.edu.
