Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX"), 20 U.S.C. §1682 et seq., is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities.  It mandates that colleges and universities create an environment free from sexual discrimination and harassment for all community members. Under Title IX, discrimination on the basis of sex can include sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, other forms of sexual misconduct, stalking, and intimate partner violence (domestic violence and dating violence). Title IX protects students, faculty, and staff in connection with all the academic, educational, extracurricular, athletic, and other programs that occur on campus or at off-campus activities that are school-related.

Cazenovia College is firmly committed to maintaining an educational environment free of gender-based discrimination, including sexual harassment and sexual violence/assault (collectively called sexual misconduct). It is the policy of Cazenovia College to ensure that all reported incidents of sexual misconduct are investigated promptly, fairly, impartially and thoroughly.
