Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits sexual discrimination in educational programs receiving federal funds. At Methodist University, some of those programs and activities include admissions, recruitment, financial aid, academic programs, athletics, housing, and employment. Title IX also protects students, faculty, and staff from unlawful sexual harassment in school programs or activities. Title IX protects both male and female students, faculty, and staff from sexual harassment, regardless of who is the harasser.
Methodist University does not discriminate on the basis of sex and is prohibited from doing so by Title IX. Sexual discrimination includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and sexual violence (see section 18.104.22.168. Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Defined in the Full Non-Discrimination and Title IX Statement).
