Title IX and Nevada Colleges
September 29, 2018

How well do you Know Your IX? With another school year in full swing, now is a great time to refresh your memory on the rights that you have as a student under this law.

Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex at schools which receive federal funding. While the statute itself is pretty short and includes few details, various supreme court rulings and guidelines provided by the Department of Education give it a broad scope to protect students when it comes to sexual violence.

So what are your rights under Title IX? They include:

  • Easy access to your school’s policies prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual violence.
  • Easy access to information about your school’s grievance procedures, including the reporting obligations of school employees, and your options as a student for reporting, confidentiality, and receiving support.
  • An equitable complaint process.
  • A prompt response to reports of violence.
  • Reasonable accommodations by the school to increase your sense of safety on campus following harassment or violence.
  • The right to file a Title IX complaint with your school.
  • The right to report, or to not report, sexual harassment or violence to campus or local law enforcement.
  • Protection from retaliation including discrimination, harassment, and intimidation.

Under Title IX, your school is required to have a Title IX Coordinator. This is the person to whom reports can be made about sex discrimination, sexual harassment, or sexual violence. The school is required to make this coordinator’s contact information easily accessible to students.

We’ve compiled a list of Title IX Coordinators at several Nevada colleges and universities below. This information is up-to-date as of September 1, 2018. We’ve included links to each school’s website so that you can confirm that you have the correct contact information.
