Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. All institutions receiving federal financial assistance (this refers to the financial aid students are able to receive) must comply with Title IX.
The Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education issued a Dear Colleague Letter on sexual harassment and sexual violence. This letter explains a school’s responsibility to respond promptly and effectively to sexual violence against students in accordance with the requirements of Title IX.
This letter requires all schools receiving federal funds to do the following:
Investigate and address sexual violence cases
Designate a Title IX Coordinator
Adopt and publish grievance procedures
Provide training on Title IX and sexual violence to students & employees
In this video you will hear from three presenters – Jordan Crews, Paul Cherry, and Chris Mitchell. Each will share important information regarding Title IX and how it can affect you.
Jordan Crews is the Deputy Prosecuting Attorney at the Faulkner County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office. Jordan is going to define and explain the consequences of four major Title IX offenses: Domestic and Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Sexual Harassment and Stalking.
