Sexual Misconduct & Title IX
The University of Nebraska is dedicated to the prevention of sexual misconduct and to providing a safe environment for students, faculty, and staff.
What is Title IX?
Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a Federal law that states: "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."
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities in federally funded schools. It also protects all students, employees, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination.
