Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal funding.

Title IX states that: "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."

Title IX requires educational programs and activities to operate in a nondiscriminatory manner, including with respect to recruitment, admissions, financial aid, athletics, sex-based harassment, pregnancy, discipline and employment. Retaliation against an individual for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy or for initiating, participating in, or refusing to participate in a complaint action under Title IX is also prohibited.

Augusta University prohibits sexual misconduct in any form including sexual harassment and discrimination based on sex. If you’ve been the victim of sexual assault or misconduct, we’re here to help.

Our office administers the University System of Georgia Board of Regents Sexual Misconduct Policy. It’s important that you know your options and take steps to get the support you need. If you’ve been sexually harassed, discriminated or assaulted, we encourage you to make a report with the university Title IX coordinator.

Our website offers information about the university’s sexual misconduct prevention and education efforts, as well as campus resources for those who've been the victim of, or witness to sexual misconduct including sexual assault.
