What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities. It states:

"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 financial assistance."

UCCS is committed to providing an environment where all individuals are free from unlawful discrimination and harassment, and will take prompt and effective steps reasonably intended to stop any form of sexual misconduct, eliminate any hostile environment, prevent its recurrence and as appropriate, remedy its effects.
