Sex Discrimination, Harassment, and Assault
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. It reads:
“ 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” -Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulations at 34 C. F. R. Part 106.
Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, assault, and/or violence.
Title IX is often thought of as the law that applies to athletic programs, Title IX is much broader than Athletics and applies to all programs at UMKC.
While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at UMKC, you can find a list of staff members below who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance.
