Title IX at OU

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits sex discrimination in any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. Specifically, the law states:

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Programs and activities subject to Title IX include but are not limited to:

• admissions and recruitment
• financial aid
• academic programs
• student treatment and services
• counseling and guidance
• discipline
• classroom assignment
• grading
• vocational education
• recreation
• physical education
• athletics
• housing
• employment

The University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex. Oakland provides many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of sex, which includes sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct is an umbrella term that incorporates a range of behaviors including sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, domestic violence and any other conduct of a sexual nature that is non-consensual.

The Director of Inclusion, Joi Cunningham, is the University’s Title IX Coordinator and investigates complaints of sex discrimination, including sexual misconduct and sex harassment in which faculty or staff members are responding to a complaint. She also oversees all complaints to identify and address any patterns or systemic problems and educates the campus community about sex discrimination and its prevention.

The Assistant Dean of Students, Michael Wadsworth, is the Deputy Title IX Coordinator and is the point person for cases in which a student is responding to a complaint. All such complaints are handled in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
