Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal law that states: “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.

Fairmont State University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex and gender. Fairmont State University provides many resources to students, faculty, and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of sex or gender in all aspects of the educational process, including in the areas of recruitment, admissions, and counseling; financial assistance; sex-based harassment and misconduct; the needs of pregnant and parenting community members; discipline; and employment.

Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Fairmont State University’s Title IX and ADA Coordinator and Compliance Specialist, Jessica Kropog Furgason, at (304) 367-4689 or Jessica.Kropog@fairmontstate.edu.
