Title IX

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex,
shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the
benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any
educational program or activity receiving
Federal financial assistance."

-Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act

Title IX is commonly thought of as pertaining to Athletics. However, the law   is actually much broader. Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in   all programs and activities of a university such as the University of   Alaska Anchorage (UAA). Although two of the most common applications of   the law are athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to   admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling   and medical services, and all other programs, events and activities   available to students at UAA. Members of the university community,   guests and visitors have the right to be free from sexual violence. All   members of the campus community are expected to conduct themselves in a   manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. UAA takes all   matters of Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault and Sexual Violence   seriously. If you have concerns or need to report an incident, please   contact:
