Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (to the Higher Education Act of 1965) prohibits gender-based discrimination in educational programs and activities in federally funded schools at all levels. It applies to an educational institution’s programs or activities including but not limited to employment, academic, housing, educational, extracurricular, and athletic activities — both on- and off-campus.

The Title IX Office at York College handles inquiries regarding discrimination, harassment, or retaliation based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, and other forms of sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct could include, but is not limited to: sexual assault, relationship or dating violence, or sexual harassment.
