Title IX Statement

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. As required by Title IX, ASU does not discriminate on the basis of sex in the education programs or activities that we operate, including in admission and employment. Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator or to the U.S. Department of Education, Assistant Secretary, or both.

ASU is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination based on sex and provides a number of supportive measures including resources and services to assist students, faculty and staff. Sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking and relationship violence have a profound impact on academic, social, working, and personal life, and negatively affects friends and families, other students, co-workers, and members of the university community. To combat this complex social problem, ASU provides a variety of resources and educational programs designed to prevent sexual violence and other acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment, provide information about what to do when an incident has occurred, and increase awareness of campus and community resources for support and response.

Students, faculty and staff who experience sexual violence, sexual harassment, stalking or relationship violence are encouraged to seek support and report the incident. ASU has appointed a Title IX Coordinator to oversee ASU response to Title IX reports and formal complaints, develop training and education programs/materials for faculty, staff and students, as well as monitor trends and effectiveness of Title IX education efforts.

Inquiries concerning the application of Title IX may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator or to the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.
