To all members of the SUNY Oswego community,

Information regarding sexual and interpersonal violence prevention, education and response is located on the Title IX website:

What is Title IX?

Title IX is the federal anti-discrimination law that states: "No person in the U.S. shall, on the basis of sex be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving federal aid." (Title IX 1972 Education Amendments). Title IX bans sex discrimination throughout our college and campus community -- in all programs and activities including, but not limited to, academic and athletic programs, financial aid, student records, health and counseling services and residence life programs. Title IX also prohibits sexual harassment, including sexual violence. 

Our policy includes the requirements of Article 129B (Enough is Enough), Clery Act and Violence Against Women Act related to sexual and interpersonal violence. You can find brief descriptions about related laws at

What does the Title IX coordinator do? 

The Title IX coordinator is responsible for monitoring overall Title IX implementation for the institution and coordinating compliance within all areas and departments. The Title IX coordinator provides ongoing training, consultation, and technical assistance on Title IX (and related laws) for students and employees. Title IX investigators assist the Title IX coordinator in responding to reports of sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual assault/violence, stalking, dating violence and domestic violence.
