What Is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients receiving federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. Sexual misconduct can have the effect of denying individuals equal access to, and benefit from, UWO programs and activities.

The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh (UWO) does not tolerate any form of sex discrimination or sexual misconduct and will provide all rights and remedies available to victims/survivors of any violation of Title IX or UWO policy, and all rights and due process to anyone accused of any violation of Title IX or UWO policy.
