Title IX and other federal and state laws collectively prohibit discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, pregnant or parenting status, and LGBTQ identity. These laws impose legal requirements and protections that serve as a foundation from which UW has created policies, practices, services, and programs that work in concert to advance equity for students, staff, and faculty of all identities.
Why Title IX may matter to you:
- You are seeking information about how to support a colleague, student, or friend who has experienced sex- and gender-based violence or harassment.
- You have experienced violence, harassment, or discrimination and want to learn about available support resources and/or reporting options.
- You are an employee who wants to understand your reporting expectations.
- You are interested in prevention education and training.
- You are interested in learning more about UW’s local or national work to improve policies, practices, services, and programs.
- You are pregnant and want to know more about the support and protections that are available.
- You are faculty or staff and are looking for the Title IX syllabus statement or required notice for hiring and admissions materials.
