Sex Discrimination, Relationship Violence, Harassment, and Assault: Union College Title IX Coordinator

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads:

“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.”

  • Legal Citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)

Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault.

While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics and applies to many programs at Union College. While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at Union, listed below are the staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance.
