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 Indiana University.

Reports of sex discrimination, harassment or sexual violence, or any information related to such an incident, must be reported immediately and directly to the Title IX Coordinators identified below, for the respective campus. The Title IX Coordinator and each campus' respective Deputy Title IX Coordinators, are responsible for overseeing IU's response to all Title IX complaints and reports, and ensuring that the appropriate designated campus officials are involved in investigating and adjudicating such complaints according to IU's applicable policies and procedures.
