Sex and Gender-Based Discrimination Under Title IX
Title IX is a federal civil rights law that prohibits sex discrimination in education. All members of the university community and visitors have the right to be free from all forms of gender and sex-based discrimination, including sexual violence, sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. The entire Board of Regent’s policy on Sex-and Gender-Based Discrimination Under Title IX may be found here: https://alaska.edu/bor/policy/01-04.pdf
