What Is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in the college's programs and activities. The college will respond to complaints or reports about prohibited conduct with measures designed to stop and eliminate any such sex- or gender-based discrimination, prevent the recurrence of the prohibited conduct and remedy any adverse effects of such conduct on campus or in college-related programs or activities.

This site contains information for students, staff and faculty regarding Title IX resources and support services, policies, procedures, education and preventions at the college. Dickinson’s Sexual Harassment and Misconduct policy is applicable to all students, staff and faculty.
