Title IX is a U.S. law (part of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972) which prohibits all forms of sex and/or gender-based discrimination, such as: sexual harassment, sexual violence, acts of verbal/non-verbal/physical aggression, intimidation, or hostility based on sex or sex-stereotyping. Title IX protects all students and employees, regardless of sex, gender identity or sexual orientation.
The Title IX depository is an ongoing collection of academic work by Rowan faculty, staff, and students relating to Title IX, including presentations from the annual Title IX Summit held at Rowan University.
Title IX related research contributions include a wide range of topics, including: sex and gender-based discrimination, sexual violence, institutional response, fostering healthy relationships, cyberbullying, and communication strategies.
