Title IX at Kalamazoo College
Kalamazoo College is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, faculty, and staff can work together in an atmosphere free from all forms of discrimination. Kalamazoo College is strongly opposed to discrimination, including sexual harassment, and such behavior is prohibited by College policy.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provides that:
“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 education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance….”
20 U.S.C. § 1681 and 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (1972).
Title IX is commonly thought of as pertaining to sports, but it is actually much broader. Title IX prohibits gender discrimination in all programs and activities of a college or university.
