Title IX

covid_sidebar.jpgTitle IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex under any education program or activity receiving federal financial aid.  It states: “No person in the United Stated shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

Northern Michigan University is committed to providing a learning, living, and working environment free from discrimination.
