Title IX

  • Sexual harassment is unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. It includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal, nonverbal, or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual violence is a form of sexual harassment prohibited by Title IX.
  • Title IX protects students in connection with all school related events.
  • If a school knows or reasonably should know about student-on-student harassment, Title IX requires the school to take immediate action to eliminate the harassment, prevent its recurrence and address its effects.
