50th Anniversary of Title IX

Today marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the federal anti-discrimination law which bans discrimination on the basis of sex and provides access to a fair, safe, and equitable environment. This important law has notably opened up substantial opportunities for women athletes over the last half-century, but it goes far beyond sports. Under Title IX, Illinois Tech has a responsibility to prevent, report, and respond to gender- and sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.

If you have experienced sexual harassment or discrimination or if you would like to schedule Title IX training, please contact the Title IX Coordinator, Virginia Foster, at foster@iit.edu.
