Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities which receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states the following:
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.
Consistent with the requirements of Title IX, Touro University Worldwide and TCLA maintains a policy of non-discrimination against any person in employment or in any of its programs.
Title IX protects students and employees from discrimination based on sex in the school’s education programs and activities. This means that Title IX protects students and employees in connection with official academic, educational, co-curricular and other programs of the school, whether those programs take place on school grounds or at an officially sanctioned offsite location.
Title IX requires that students and employees receive fair and equitable treatment in all areas of education. Examples include educational activities and programming directly related to a course of study, recruitment, admissions, financial aid, hiring and retention of employees and benefits and leave.
