Title IX

Office of Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”), 20 U.S.C. §1681 et seq. states:

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.

Title IX is a federal law that prohibits sexual harassment, sexual violence, and discrimination on the basis of sex. UA Little Rock is committed to responding promptly and effectively when it learns of any form of possible discrimination based upon sex.

UA Little Rock is committed to providing an environment that emphasizes the dignity and worth of every member of its community and is free from harassment and discrimination based upon race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, service in the uniformed services (as defined in state and federal law), veteran status, sex, age, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, or genetic information. Such an environment is necessary for a healthy learning, working, and living atmosphere.

If you believe you or someone else has been subjected to sexual harassment or sex-based discrimination by a university student, employee, or visitor under Title IX, please report such conduct to Emily Bell, Title IX Coordinator at 501-916-5716 or titleix@ualr.edu.
