What is Title IX?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits all forms of sex or gender-based discrimination in any education program or activity that receives federal funding. Title IX prohibits acts of verbal, nonverbal, or physical aggression, intimidation, or hostility based on sex, even if those acts do not involve conduct of a sexual nature.

The AVP/Title IX Coordinator is available to provide information and advice regarding Title IX for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors. In addition, they are available to respond to complaints and concerns relative to Penn’s compliance with its sex discrimination policy as well as federal, state, or local regulations.
