Title IX applies to educational institutions that receive federal funding from the U.S. Department of Education. Title IX protects participants from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities. Title IX 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.
On the 50th anniversary of the passing of Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education released proposed changes to the current Title IX regulations. The Department’s proposed Title IX regulations will be open for public comment for 60 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register.
These changes will most likely go into effect in 2023.
Below are resources for the current Title IX regulations.
