Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (20 U.S.C. § 1681) is an all-encompassing federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.  Although Title IX is often associated with equal opportunity in athletics programs, the law is much broader and includes discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual harassment and sexual assault.

"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..." 20 U.S.C. § 1681

While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility, oversight of Morrisville State College's compliance with Title IX is the responsibility of the Title IX Coordinator. Questions or concerns regarding Title IX should be directed to Sarah Steele Morrisville State College's Title IX Coordinator. See contact information below.

Do you believe you have been a victim of sexual misconduct?  Whether or not you reported the incident to the college, we'd like your opinion on how we can improve the effectiveness of our campus policies and procedures that address sexual misconduct. I welcome your suggestions and/or feedback.
