CSUSM TITLE IX NOTICE OF NON-DISCRIMINATION

WHAT IS TITLE IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities which 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.”

Title IX forbids sex discrimination in all university services and programs. Although often thought of only in terms of athletic programs, Title IX also covers sexual harassment, and sexual assault as a form of sex discrimination.
