Abstract

Title IX is a federal law that is enacted on college campuses across America, designed to protect people from sex-based discrimination in education programs. Title IX records cases of assault, bullying, theft, harassment, stalking, and more. In conjunction with the Cleary Act, Title IX is essential in recording and reporting cases on misconduct to the general public. However, loopholes in legislation allow cases to not be prosecuted to their fullest extent, leaving victims without the closure they desire and perpetrators without the punishment they deserve. The Effectiveness of Title IX Legislation at American Universities will investigate the laws and policy behind Title IX. It will seek to propose changes to the Title IX Program at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University to ensure that the program is running as effectively and inclusively as possible, so that students who are seeking help feel included and respected no matter what circumstances they are facing.
