Sex Discrimination - Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education and employment. Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual assault. While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at the university, the university has designated certain staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance. For a list of Title IX Coordinators and additional resources, including who to contact if you have a complaint of sexual harassment, sex discrimination, or sexual assault, visit the Rutgers Compliance Office website.
Individuals who have been the victim of a crime, including sexual assault, may contact the Rutgers Campus Police.
