Citrus College Sexual Violence and Prevention Statement

Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972 (20 U.S.C.§ 1681 et seq.) is an all-encompassing federal law that prohibits discrimination based on the gender of students and employees in educational institutions which receive federal financial assistance.
