Title IX 

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a Federal law that prohibits discrimination based on sex in federally funded education programs and activities.

“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.”

Title IX requires colleges/universities to designate at least one employee to coordinate efforts to comply and carry out the university’s responsibilities under Title IX.

Texas Southern University’s Title IX Coordinator is Bobby Brown. Anyone who believes they have experienced discrimination or harassment in violation of Texas Southern University policy is encouraged to contact the Title IX Coordinator at TitleIX@tsu.edu  or by calling 713.313.1371.
