Title IX

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any education program or activity that received federal funding

Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, rape, and sexual assault. A college or university that receive federal financial funds may be held legally responsible when it knows about and ignores sexual harassment or assault in its programs or activities. The school can be held responsible in court whether the harassment is committed by a faculty member, staff, or a student.

SIPI's Interim Title IX Coordinator is Cecelia Cometsevah, Ph.D., LMHC. Dr. Cometsevah oversees all complaints of sex discrimination and is responsible for identifying and addressing problems arising during the review of such complaints. Questions and concerns may be directed to the following:
