What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681 & its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R Part 106 provides that “no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”

At the University of West Georgia, sexual misconduct includes, but is not limited to, such unwanted behavior as dating violence, domestic violence, nonconsensual sexual contact, nonconsensual sexual penetration, sexual exploitation, sexual harassment and stalking.
