Title IX Resources: Sex Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Assault

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination.

Because Union University accepts federal student loans, Union is committed to the fulfillment of the Title IX requirements.

Union University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, including discrimination based upon sex. The University provides support and resources to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns related to sex discrimination. To this end, the University has appointed Cynthia Jayne, Ph.D., University Professor of Language and Associate Provost for Intercultural and International Studies, as the Acting Title IX Coordinator. Retaliation against an individual who has filed a complaint under Title IX is prohibited and the University will take strong action if it occurs. As Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Jayne has the following responsibilities:
