Title IX

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…” 34 C.F.R. 106
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. If only one of an educational institution’s programs or activities receives federal funding, all of the programs within the institution must comply with Title IX and its implementing regulations. Accordingly, Tougaloo College prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all of its programs and activities, including academics, employment, athletics, and other extracurricular activities. This prohibition includes gender-based harassment, sexual violence and other sexual misconduct.
Compliance with Title IX is a community-wide responsibility. The information here provides an overview of the College’s policy, who you may contact with questions about Title IX and how you can report sexual discrimination, sexual misconduct, and retaliation. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the College’s Title IX Coordinator:
