What is Title IX?
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity.
“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 educational program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.”
The University of Montevallo does not discriminate on the basis of sex in our education program or activities we operate and are required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner. The requirement not to discriminate in our education program or activities extends to admission and employment. If you have any inquiries about the application of Title IX, please contact our Interim Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Kristy Lee.
The University of Montevallo adheres to all federal, state, and local civil rights laws prohibiting discrimination in employment and education. The University does not discriminate in its admissions practices, in its employment practices, or in its educational programs or activities on the basis of sex/gender. The University is required by the Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure that all of its education programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of sex/gender.
