Your Guide to Title IX Discrimination and College Athletics

Title IX discriminationIf you are a fan of sports, you may have heard about Title IX. Even though you have probably heard this term thrown around, you may not know exactly what it means. During the past few years, Title IX has been placed in the spotlight once again. What does this mean, and how does Title IX discrimination apply?

What Is Title IX?

Essentially, Title IX is a law that states that nobody should be excluded from any educational program or activity receiving federal assistance on the basis of sex. Even though Title IX often applies to athletics, it applies to all areas of education that receive federal funding, including colleges and universities.

Title IX is best known for providing equal access to athletic opportunities for men and women at the college and university level. At the same time, it also applies to learning environments, career education, sexual harassment, and technology services. 

What Is Title IX Discrimination?

There are several examples of Title IX discrimination that could take place. These include:

  • the sexual harassment of students by other students, teachers, and administrators;
  • discrimination on the basis of sex (VII also prevents employment discrimination on the basis of sex);
  • and retaliation against people who take action against schools that may be in violation of Title IX. This includes retaliation against reporting sexual harassment to the authorities.
