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. It provides that no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.  Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual violence.  While it is often thought of as a law that applies to athletics programs, Title IX is much broader than athletics, applying to educational programs as well as employment with the University. 

While compliance with the law is everyone’s responsibility at the University, listed below are the staff members who have primary responsibility for Title IX compliance. If you have a complaint against a member of the Rutgers community, please contact one of the following Title IX Coordinators:
