Title IX logo

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (amending the Higher Education Act of 1965) is a federal gender equity law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal funding. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence and other forms of nonconsensual sexual misconduct, is a form of sex discrimination and is prohibited under this law. Title IX states:

“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 assistance. . . .” (20 U.S.C. section 1681)

Clemson University is committed to providing a higher education environment that is free from sexual discrimination.  Therefore, if you believe you or someone else that is part of the Clemson University community has been discriminated against based on sex or if you have questions about Title IX, please contact the Clemson University Title IX Coordinator, Mr. Jerry Knighton, who is also the Director of the Office of Access and Equity, at 110 Holtzendorff Hall, 864-656-3181 (voice) or 864-656-0899 (TDD). The Title IX Coordinator is the person(s) designated by Clemson University to oversee its Title IX compliance efforts.
