Title IX is a federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender/sex at educational institutions that receive federal funding (20 U.S.C. 1681). Title IX was strengthened by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) in 2013. State laws and UH policy reinforce and add to UH Hilo’s obligations. Read the policy in full .
