Sex and Gender Based Discrimination
Sexual Misconduct and Title IX
University of Alaska Anchorage is committed to sustaining an environment of respect and support for all of our community members. An important part of that mission is ensuring that UAA’s campus is free of discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual assault, sexual harassment, and gender-based discrimination. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and certain other state and federal laws prohibited discrimination that is based on sex in employment, educational programs, and university sponsored events.
All of UAA’s community deserves to pursue their educational and employment related goals free of discrimination on the basis of sex. OEC takes seriously all reports of sex-based discrimination and provides resources to all of our community members to ensure students, staff, and community members feel safe and supported.
