Know Your Rights
University of Sioux Falls is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, faculty, and staff can work together in an environment free of all forms of harassment, exploitation, violence and intimidation.
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) prohibits discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. It is a broad tool designed to ensure equality of educational opportunity. Examples of the types of discrimination that are covered under Title IX include sexual harassment; the failure to provide equal athletic opportunity; discrimination based on sexual orientation; discrimination based on gender identity; and discrimination based on pregnancy. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for filing a complaint or for advocating for a right protected by Title IX.
Individuals with questions about Title IX, other forms of gender-based discrimination, or sexual misconduct are encouraged to contact: Julie Gednalske at 605.331.6802 or Julie.Gednalske@usiouxfalls.edu or firstname.lastname@example.org
