Title IX Office

Title IX • Sexual Misconduct • Power-Based Violence

ULM does not discriminate, or tolerate discrimination, against any member of its community on the basis of sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity) in matters of admissions, employment, or in any aspect of the educational programs or activities it offers.  As a recipient of federal financial assistance for education activities, ULM is required by Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 to ensure that all of its education programs and activities do not discriminate on the basis of sex.

Sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating and domestic violence, and stalking are forms of sex discrimination, which are prohibited under Title IX. Furthermore, ULM’s Sexual Misconduct and Power Based Violence Policy prohibits all types of sexual misconduct, including sexual exploitation and power-based violence. This policy also prohibits retaliation against any person opposing sex discrimination, sexual misconduct and power-based violence or participating in any sex discrimination, sexual misconduct and power-based violence investigation or complaint process internally or externally.
