Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. 

Title IX benefits both males and females and is at the heart of efforts to create gender equitable schools. The law requires institutions to maintain polices, practices and programs that do not discriminate against anyone based upon sex. Arkansas State University is dedicated to addressing any incidences of sexual discrimination, including sexual harassment or sexual violence with prompt action and equitable review. Individuals with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact a Title IX coordinator. The university has designated a Title IX coordinator for each campus.
