Student Handbook - Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972

This law provides that, "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...." This includes protection from sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking as well as discrimination and harassment based on an individual’s status as pregnant or parenting. In accordance with Title IX, Xavier University does not discriminate, exclude from participation in, or deny benefits of its educational programs, admission policies, activities, or employment policies and opportunities on the basis of gender. Xavier's Title IX Office monitors compliance with this law and coordinates Xavier's response to complaints of discrimination based on sex, including assisting Reporting Parties in receiving any medical, mental health or other services and facilitating any interim protective measures that may be warranted. Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX and Xavier’s Title IX policies may be referred to Xavier's Chief Title IX Officer:
