What is Title IX?

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. 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."  Read more »

Title IX Resource Coordinators

Title IX Resource Coordinators serve in a neutral role and support all members of the VLS community. Resource Coordinators have specialized experience in responding to disclosures of sexual and gender-based harassment in the VLS community. They are also aware that your concerns may be of a sensitive nature and can offer supports to help you continue with your work or studies while maintaining appropriate discretion.

Contacting your Title IX Resource Coordinator is not the same as filing a formal complaint with Vermont Law School’s Title IX Coordinator. When you reach out to a Title IX Resource Coordinator, you are free to share as much or as little information as you feel comfortable.  Read more »
