A College Student’s Guide to Title IX
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: “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.” But what does that mean in real life? Does Title IX benefit survivors of sexual violence on campus? What does it mean to report to Title IX? What are common misconceptions? We talked to Title IX Investigator Angela Zippin and Project Coordinator, Stacey Walden, both from Northern Kentucky University to try and unpack as much as we can around Title IX.
