No person in the United States shall, on the basis on 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 of the Education Amendments of 1972
20 U.S.C. § 1681

Title IX is fundamentally about reducing and removing barriers to education based on sex discrimination. How that is interpreted has evolved substantially since 1972. While sexual misconduct has become synonymous with Title IX over the past few years, Title IX is so much more.

We hope this page offers helpful insight and information regarding other aspects of Title IX and sex discrimination, including information on how Lafayette College is working to ensure a nondiscriminatory environment for all. If you have ideas or suggestions, please be in touch.
