Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 provides that:
No person...shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance...
The following are examples of types of sex-based discrimination prohibited by Title IX:
- Sexual harassment, including sexual assault, occurring in connection with any academic, athletic, extracurricular, or other university program, regardless of the location;
- Discriminatory decision-making by a supervisor of an employee based on the employee's sex;
- Failure to provide equitable opportunity for participation in intercollegiate sports; or
- Disproportionate awards of athletic scholarships.

Part 106), Texas Tech's Title IX Coordinator is the designated university official with primary responsibility for coordinating the university's compliance with Title IX and other federal and state laws and regulations relating to sex-based discrimination.
