Who is protected under Title IX?
Title IX prohibits discrimination based on sex in educational programs and activities funded by the federal government. This means colleges and universities, but also includes K-12 educational institutions as well.
Title IX protects students, employees, applicants for admission and employment, and other persons from all forms of sex discrimination, including discrimination based on gender identity or failure to conform to stereotypical notions of masculinity or femininity. All students (as well as other persons) at Binghamton University are protected by Title IX — regardless of their sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, part- or full-time status, disability, race or national origin in all aspects of Binghamton University programs and services.
The essence of Title IX is that an institution may not exclude, separate, deny benefits to or otherwise treat differently any person on the basis of sex.
