“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.”

— 20 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.

Overview of Sex Discrimination

The University of North Carolina Greensboro is committed to the principle that educational and employment decisions should be based on an individual’s abilities and qualifications and should not be based on personal characteristics or beliefs that have no relevance to academic ability or to job performance. Accordingly, UNCG supports policies, curricula and co-curricular activities that encourage understanding of and appreciation for all members of its community. UNCG will not tolerate any harassment of or discrimination against persons. UNCG is committed to equal opportunity in education and employment for all persons and will not tolerate any discrimination against or harassment of persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, political affiliation, genetic information, veteran status, disabling condition, or age.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and certain other federal and state laws prohibit discrimination on these bases in education programs and activities operated by UNCG. The University complies with the requirements of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. Sec. 1681, et seq., and subsequent regulations, which prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance. UNCG receives such assistance and complies with this law and its implementation of regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106.

To ensure compliance with Title IX, the Chancellor of the University has designated the Title IX Coordinator as the primary contact responsible for developing, adopting and/or assuring the dissemination of the University’s non-discrimination policy and for making the policy available to the University community. 

The information found in the following pages is meant to help our community understand the rights and responsibilities of all community members. Inquiries concerning the application of these laws to programs and activities of University of North Carolina Greensboro or any individual who believes they have been discriminated against in violation of the University’s nondiscrimination policy, including sexual harassment or gender discrimination, or who has witnessed discrimination against another, may obtain information and assistance regarding the University’s policies and responsive processes from the resources herein.

Role of the Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator is charged with coordinating the University’s efforts to comply with the University’s responsibilities under Title IX. The Coordinator will ensure the University notifies applicants for admission and employment, students, parents or legal guardians of elementary and secondary school students, and employees of the name and title, office address, electronic mailing address, and telephone number of the employee designated as the Title IX Coordinator. Any person may report sex discrimination, including sexual harassment (whether or not the person reporting is the person alleged to be the victim of conduct that could constitute sex discrimination or sexual harassment), in person, by mail, by telephone, or by electronic mail, using the contact information listed for the Title IX Coordinator to the right or by any other means that results in the Title IX Coordinator receiving the person’s verbal or written report. Such a report may be made at any time (including during non-business hours) by using the telephone number or electronic mail address, or by mail to the office address, listed for the Title IX Coordinator. Such coordination may include delegating reporting and response tasks to appropriate University designees such as the Title IX Investigator and Dean of Students Office.
