2024 Title IX Final Rule Overview

U.S. Department of Education

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) was signed into law more than 50 years ago. In the decades since, Title IX’s protections have paved the way for tremendous strides in access to education and more for millions of students across the country and have opened doors for generations of women and girls. In spite of this historic progress, rates of sexual harassment and assault in our nation’s schools and colleges remain unacceptably high. Many women see their education derailed because of pregnancy discrimination. And many LGBTQI+ students face bullying and harassment just because of who they are. The Department has now released its final rule to fully effectuate Title IX’s promise that no person experiences sex discrimination in federally funded education.
