Title IX

What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 states that: 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.

In short, the law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex (gender) in any federally funded education program or activity. Title IX applies to educational institutions such as Stony Brook University. Under Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972, colleges and universities are required to develop procedures to respond to claims of sexual harassment.

Stony Brook University, Stony Brook Medicine, and the Long Island State Veterans Home (LISVH) Title IX Coordinator is Marjolie Leonard, who can be reached at   or by calling   631.632.6280.
