Title IX's prohibition against sex discrimination is for the protection of students, faculty, and staff in federally funded education programs. The law applies to every aspect of the program, such as admissions, recruitment, academics, employment, athletics, and student services. Title IX's broad prohibition against sex discrimination also includes sexual harassment and sexual assault. Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature.
Title IX based grievances may be filed with the UW-Eau Claire Affirmative Action Office, the State of Wisconsin Affirmative Action and Civil Rights Compliance Office, or the Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights.
