Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Providing an environment free from sexual discrimination is of the highest priority for Northeastern.
Sexual misconduct, sexual harassment, stalking, dating violence, and domestic violence are not tolerated at Northeastern. Preventing and remedying these forms of misconduct is a campus wide responsibility, led by the University’s Title IX Office. The Title IX Office oversees the implementation and enforcement of the appropriate policy requirements in the University’s Sexual Misconduct policy. This policy provides extensive guidance on Title IX reporting, investigation procedures and institutional requirements. In addition, Northeastern is deeply committed to eliminating sexual discrimination through training and educational programs.
