Sexual Harassment, Discrimination, & Title IX
Title IX benefits all genders, and is at the heart of efforts to create gender equitable schools. The law requires educational institutions to maintain policies, practices and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based on sex.
If you have been a victim of sexual assault, sexual harassment, domestic/dating violence, stalking, sex-based discrimination, or pregnancy discrimination, we are here to help.
