Title IX Background
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a Federal law that protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment and violence are forms of discrimination based on sex. Title IX 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 assistance.
Howard Community College complies with Title IX regulations and is providing the following to inform and educate the college community about what constitutes sexual discrimination, how to prevent it, how to report it, and how reported incidents of Title IX will be addressed.
