Title IX


Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive federal funding. Title IX states 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.”

Title IX requires educational programs and activities that receive federal funding to operate in a nondiscriminatory manner, including with respect to recruitment, admissions, financial aid, athletics, sex-based harassment, pregnancy, discipline and employment.  Retaliation against an individual for opposing an unlawful educational practice or policy or for initiating, participating in, or refusing to participate in a complaint action under Title IX is also prohibited.

Title IX Coordinators

The Title IX Coordinator is the designated Institute official with primary responsibility for coordinating compliance with Title IX. This includes providing leadership for Title IX activities; providing consultation, education and training; and helping to ensure the Institute responds appropriately, effectively and equitably to Title IX issues.

Title IX Athletics

Title IX requires gender equity in athletics. Georgia Tech fully supports equality of opportunity for its male and female athletes, whether as part of its (NCAA) Division I intercollegiate athletics program or through its more than 30 student-run sports clubs and 20 intramural teams.


VOICE is a campus-wide initiative housed in Health and Well-Being and is founded on the premise that everyone has the right to live and learn at Georgia Tech, free of violence or the threat of violence. VOICE educates the campus community about sexual violence through various presentations and programs throughout the year.

This commitment is both a moral imperative consistent with an intellectual community that celebrates individual differences and diversity, as well as a matter of law.
