Sexual Misconduct and Title IX
Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in education programs and activities that receive federal funding. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking, dating violence, domestic abuse, and discrimination within housing, athletics, and employment. If you believe you have been a victim of discrimination on the basis of sex or are aware of discrimination occurring, Loyola encourages you to report the incident.
