​Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (commonly known as "Title IX") is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in federally funded education programs and activities. Sex discrimination includes sexual harassment, and sexual and relationship violence. When the University receives a complaint, it will respond to the complaint in a prompt and equitable manner. Every complaint is based on its own facts and circumstances, which can impact the course of response. DePaul University prohibits retaliation against any person, including complainants, respondents and witnesses exercising their rights and/or responsibilities in good faith pursuant to Title IX and related University policies.
