“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."
— Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972
The Title IX office is dedicated to ensuring gender equity at Tulane University, which includes coordinating the University's efforts to prevent and effectively respond to all forms of sex discrimination (including gender identity and sexual orientation discrimination) and sexual misconduct impacting community members, including sexual assault, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, and stalking. This work is done in compliance with applicable law, including Title IX, the Clery Act, and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013, all of which are coordinated by the Assistant Provost for Title IX Compliance and Education. The Title IX office also maintains the University’s comprehensive program designed to prevent sexual misconduct and remediate the effects of sexual misconduct on victims and the greater Tulane community.
Learn more about our policies to comply with the U.S. Department of Education’s 2020 final regulation regarding sexual harassment (including sexual violence) here and by watching the below video. Please note that all conduct of a sexual nature that previously constituted a violation of University policy will continue to constitute a violation of University policy. However, such conduct may now be adjudicated under different grievance procedures.
