Understanding Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in federally funded education programs and activities. Sex-based discrimination includes sexual harassment and sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, and sexual coercion. The law covers sex-based discrimination against students, faculty and staff.

The University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex. The University of Alabama in Huntsville provides many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual misconduct.

To ensure compliance with Title IX, The University of Alabama in Huntsville has appointed a University Title IX Coordinator as well as deputy coordinators for key populations. You may contact the coordinators below with any questions regarding Title IX, as well as concerns and complaints of non-compliance.
