What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex under any education program or activity receiving federal financial aid. Sexual assault and sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

Eastern Michigan University is committed to providing a learning, living and working environment free from discrimination. Any gender based discrimination, including sexual misconduct which includes but is not limited to, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, relationship violence and sexual exploitation committed by EMU students, staff or faculty will not be tolerated. This applies to academic, education, athletic, residential and other University operated programs. Eastern Michigan University encourages individuals who believe they have been sexually harassed, assaulted or subjected to sexual misconduct by an EMU student or employee to seek assistance.

While compliance with the law is everyone's responsibility at EMU, the person designated to handle inquiries of sex discrimination is:

Dr. Melody A. Werner
