“No person in the United States 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.”Legal citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)
Title IX is a federal law that protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities. The Title IX office assists students, faculty, staff, public visitors on campus, and potential/future employees.
At Dakota State University we strive to provide a safe environment free from the effects of harassment, discrimination and sexual misconduct, which includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. Through sexual violence related programs and services, we continue to bring awareness on prevention, reporting, and resources to provide a safer community.
Our overall purpose, in collaboration with Student Affairs, is to provide programming aimed at educating and empowering our college community to be proactive in helping others, regardless of the situation.

The Title IX/EEO Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators are knowledgeable about and will provide information on, all options for complaint resolution. They also work closely with the Risk Management Committee, Behavioral/ Threat Assessment Team and the Sexual Assault Response Team.
Title IX requires the University to take immediate action to eliminate the harassment or discrimination, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects. Universities are required to adopt and publish grievance procedures for students who complain of sex or gender discrimination.
If someone tells you or you overhear information that may pertain to Title IX/EEO, contact the Title IX/EEO Coordinator immediately. Title IX/EEO investigations are separate from a law enforcement investigation, even when a police report is filed. The University is required to conduct an independent investigation that is prompt, thorough and impartial.
