Title IX prohibits sex-based discrimination, which includes pregnancy and parenting status, in educational programs and activities.

Title IX prohibits the exclusion of pregnant students from participating in any part of an educational program.

Title IX is a comprehensive federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity) in any educational program or activity that receives federal funding. Discrimination on the basis of sex includes sexual harassment and sexual violence, which includes sexual assault, sexual coercion, domestic/intimate partner violence, and stalking. Nondiscrimination protections apply to student recruitment, admissions, educational programs (including individual courses), research, housing, counseling, financial and employment assistance, health and insurance benefits and services. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against any person who reports or assists in making a report of sexual misconduct or who participates in the investigation and resolution of a complaint in any way.

The university fosters a healthy campus climate and a campus that provides a safe space to learn, work, live and engage.
