  • What is Title IX?

    Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all educational institutions receiving federal funding. The U.S. Department of Education enforces Title IX and defines discrimination on the basis of sex to include sexual harassment, sexual assault, and gender-based relationship violence and stalking.

    The New School prohibits discrimination and harassment based on sex and gender in all education programs and activities of the university and in employment and admissions. The New School also prohibits discrimination and harassment based on all protected classes recognized in federal, state, and local laws.

    In May 2020, the U.S. Department of Education issued updated Title IX regulations that provide a specific definition of sexual harassment, a framework for responding to reports of this conduct, and a grievance process that must be followed. See New Procedures for Title IX Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Cases. For a more detailed explanation of the new laws, see Frequently Asked Questions.

    What Is Non–Title IX Sexual Harassment and Related Misconduct?

    Sexual harassment, sexual assault, and related misconduct that falls outside the scope and definition of the new Title IX laws will be handled under the procedures outlined in the University Policy on Harassment, Discrimination, Prohibited Relationships, and Title IX and Non-Title IX Sexual Harassment and Misconduct. (pages 1-33)

    See the employee case flow chart and student case flow chart.
