What is Title IX?

Title IX is an anti-discriminatory federal regulation that prohibits any type of gender based discrimination in educational settings. Bowdoin provides support and services for instances including, but not limited to: sexual misconduct, gender based violence, harassment, stalking, intimate partner/relationship violence, and unequal opportunities based on gender.

If a student or employee of the college experiences or witnesses any type of harassment, violence, or discrimination, they should report it to the Director of Gender Violence Prevention and Education, Benje Douglas or through the Online Reporting Form.

General information about Title IX and sex discrimination in education is available from the Office for Civil Rights. Visit their website or call 800-421-3481.
