Title IX Explained

Title IX—part of a 1972 federal education law— prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Sexual harassment and sexual violence are forms of sex discrimination. Amherst College is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, including based upon sex.

Laurie Frankl is the Title IX Coordinator at Amherst. Her job is to oversee the college's compliance with Title IX.
