Title IX Resources
Student Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct Policy
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.” Additional laws prohibit sex discrimination in education on the basis of sex, as well as dating violence, domestic violence and stalking. This Student Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct Policy is RIT’s Student Title IX Policy. RIT’s Student Title IX Policy applies whenever any allegation of sex discrimination is made by or against an RIT student. This policy applies equally regardless of an individual’s sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression.
