Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is an all-encompassing federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the gender of students and employees of educational institutions which received federal financial assistance.

Every institution must have a designated Title IX coordinator. The University has named Melissa Cahill, as the Title IX Coordinator and Director of Human Enrichment. The Title IX coordinator oversees that creation of policies, procedures and notifications designed to ensure compliance with Title IX; supervises the implementation of compliance procedures, including investigation and disposition of complaints; answers questions and provides guidance about Title IX compliance.
