Title IX Statute

Title IX Statute

Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 is the landmark legislation that bans sex discrimination in schools that receive any Federal money. Title IX is often thought of as a law that applies only to athletics programs. In fact, Title IX is much broader than Athletics and applies to all or nearly all programs at The New School. It reads:
“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.”

Non-Discriminatory Policy

The New School is an independent school that respects, embraces, and celebrates diversity in its curriculum, student body, and staff. The New School does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, color, national or ethnic origin in the admission of students, in hiring, or in the administration of its educational program.
