Title IX is about the practice of equality and protection from sex discrimination. This federal mandate was put in place to protect students attending educational institutions. Title IX of the Constitution states from the Education Amendments Act of 1972 is a federal law that states: -No person in the United States shall, based on sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program (-14th Amendment and the evolution of Title IX,- n.d.). Title IX is more than about collegiate sports. The received federal Title IX funds granted to a higher educational institution are held to a high standard to provide equality for all students and fair treatment to all genders involved in any athletic activities and educational programs that are enrolled at the institution. Other title IX infractions are unfair treatment and behavior toward an individual based upon gender, sex, gender identity, and stereotyping.
