Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and subsequent amendments and clarifications, states that "no person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, shall 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..." This policy has been developed as part of and in support of Wheeling Jesuit University's commitment to remain in full compliance with all federal Title IX directives and against prohibited sexual discrimination in educational programs.

Pursuant to Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and 34 C.F.R. Part 106, Wheeling Jesuit University's Title IX Committee is the designated agent of the University with primary responsibility for coordinating University-wide Title IX efforts. The Title IX Committee's responsibilities are critical to the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX legislation, regulation, and case law.
