Title IX and Sexual Misconduct

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in all educational, extracurricular, athletic and other programs and activities of Dartmouth College.  The prohibition against sex discrimination applies regardless of whether the activity is conducted on campus, off campus, in transit or if sponsored at other locations.

Sexual harassment, sexual assault and other acts of sexual misconduct are forms of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.  In addition to protecting Dartmouth students, faculty and staff, Title IX and Dartmouth policy protect third parties from sexual harassment or sexual misconduct in Dartmouth's programs and activities.  (For example, Title IX would protect a visiting student-athlete.)

Dartmouth provides many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to sexual misconduct and other forms of sex discrimination. Please see for more information.
