Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex. This includes sexual harassment, sexual violence in educational programming and activities. All public and private schools that receive federal funds must comply with Title IX. If you have experienced sexual discrimination, sexual harassment or violence, here are some things you should know about your Title IX rights and Hesston College’s Title IX Policy.
