Title IX

"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.” Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX).

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center is a recipient of Federal financial assistance for education activities, and in accordance with the provisions of the Education Amendments Act of 1972, all of its education programs and activities are subject to the prohibition of Title IX. Additionally, in compliance with state law, the University develops a Title IX implementation plan annually and submits it to the state Comptroller’s office. This plan reflects the guidelines set forth in the document, “Without Regard to Gender,” produced by the Office of Education Accountability. View the Title IX plan produced for all UT System campuses.

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center does not discriminate on the basis of sex in our education programs or activities, including admissions and employment.  The University is required by Title IX not to discriminate in such a manner. The University has a Policy on Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Dating Violence, Domestic Violence, and Stalking which may be accessed here.
