Why Should you Attend
It wasn't too long ago, and even to some extent today, when Title IX was thought of as a "girls in sports" law only. Indeed, today the law still involves equal access and funding for girls' sports but it is so much more than that. Among other protections, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual assault in education programs and activities in K-12 and higher education. Title IX requires that educational institutions provide for an equal education for females and males. The law includes discrimination and harassment, including sexual assault and rape; a major issue on college and university campuses around the country. Research suggests college campuses are not responding to complaints of sexual violence according to Title IX law requirements, resulting in students' physical and psychological trauma and violating their civil rights to an equitable education.

Not only does Title IX require that higher education institutions prevent and intervene on instances of sexual harassment and sexual assault, but it is joined by the Clery Act. The Clery Act, a federal law named for a student, Jeanne Clery, who was raped and murdered in 1986, requires that colleges and universities keep a public crime log, send emergency alerts about sexual assaults, train staff and aid victims. Recent lawsuits show that colleges and universities are not abiding by the Clery Act, and that Clery Act fines have more than doubled from their original amount, to $54,789 per violation, following the latest announcement by the Department of Education in April.
