Notice of Non-discrimination and Title IX
New Jersey City University (NJCU) is a higher education place of work, teaching, and learning for the benefit of students and the overall campus community. NJCU is committed to providing a campus environment free from discrimination based on sex. Compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. Section 1681 et seq. (“Title IX”) is an important part of this commitment.
Title IX is a federal civil rights law and provides that:
“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”
Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex includes sexual harassment or sexual violence, such as rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, or sexual coercion.
