What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs, including athletic programs, or activities that receive federal funding.
The SUNY Fredonia athletic program adheres to all of the provisions of Title IX (Letter and intent).
No person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participating in, be denied the benefits of or be treated differently from another person or otherwise be discriminated against in any intercollegiate program at SUNY Fredonia.
Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, rape, and sexual assault.
