No person in the United States, on the basis of sex, shall be excluded from participation, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.- Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972
What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from sex and gender discrimination, including sexual misconduct, in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive Federal financial assistance. The University of Houston System (UHS) is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex and gender. UHS provides many resources to faculty, staff, and students to address concerns related to sex and gender discrimination that may negatively impact community members' educational and career progress.
Who is responsible for ensuring Title IX compliance at UH?
The Office of Equal Opportunity Services (EOS) has been designated to oversee the implementation of the UHS Sexual Misconduct/Title IX Policy. EOS recognizes the great impact that sexual misconduct can have on those who have experienced sexual assault, nonconsensual sexual contact, sexual harassment, sexual intimidation, sexual exploitation, stalking, and dating and domestic violence. We demonstrate that we are a community that cares by facilitating preventative education efforts, connecting faculty, staff, and students to support services, and enforcing our Sexual Misconduct Policy.
Toni Sanchez Benoit serves as Title IX Coordinator for the University of Houston.
