Title IX at UNO
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 states the following:
“No person in the United States, shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
UNO is responsible for responding to allegations of sexual misconduct to immediately stop the harassment, remedy its effects, and prevent its recurrence.
- Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in educational institutions that receive federal funding
- Prohibited conduct includes dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, sexual harassment, sexual exploitation, stalking, and retaliation.
- Applies to students, faculty, staff, and anyone present on campus regardless of sexual orientation, immigration status, gender identity, or disability status
- Retaliation for reporting is prohibited by law and covered under Title IX
