Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq., is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in any federally funded education program or activity. The New School is committed to educating students and employees about Title IX and how it affects the university community as a way to affirm the dignity of all students.

Students or employees who wish to report an incident or have questions about gender discrimination, harassment, or sexual misconduct are encouraged to contact their Title IX officer.
