Title IX

Title IX refers to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 [20 U.S.C. § 1681] which is a federal law that states the following:

No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.

As a recipient of federal financial assistance, the University of Wisconsin-Madison is subject to the requirements of Title IX.
