“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 program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance…”,  20 U.S.C. 1681(a).

Title IX prohibits sex discrimination in all college programs and activities, including but not limited to: admissions and recruiting; financial aid; academic programs; student services; counseling and guidance; discipline; class assignment; grading; recreation; athletics; housing; and, employment. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against people for making or participating in complaints of sex discrimination. Title IX is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights (OCR).

On August 14, 2020, BMCC implemented its new Title IX policy to comply with newly revised federal regulations issued on May 6, 2020, by the Department of Education. Click here to view the policy.
