A Landmark Celebration

June 23, 2022 marked the 50th Anniversary of Title IX.  The University is committed to complying with Title IX and is dedicated to commemorating this landmark U.S. law. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal law that ensures, 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.”
