Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs or activities operated by recipients of federal financial assistance (such as UNH). Discrimination on the basis of sex, includes any form of gender-based different treatment and harassment - acts that do not involve conduct of a sexual nature such as discriminatory sex stereotyping. It also prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in athletic programs, and sexual violence, as defined by UNH policy and as discussed more specifically herein. Title IX's prohibitions apply to all students, faculty, and staff.
Title IX regulations require UNH to appoint a Title IX Coordinator to coordinate UNH's compliance with Title IX, to publish a notice of nondiscrimination and to adopt and publish grievance procedures that lead to the prompt and equitable resolution of Title IX complaints. They also require UNH to publish the name and contact information of the designated Title IX Coordinator.
The Title IX Coordinator for the University of New Hampshire (Durham), the University of New Hampshire (Manchester) and the University of New Hampshire School of Law (Concord) is Donna Marie Sorrentino, M.P.A. Her contact information is below.
