What does Title IX mean to me?
Title IX is commonly referenced in three topic areas in higher education: athletics (gender equity across sports), STEM (gender equipty across the science, engineering, technology and math) and sexual misconduct.
This web site focuses on services, resources and education related to sexual misconduct at ECU. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex discrimination and it includes sexual harassment, sexual abuse, rape, sexual assault, sexual battery and sexual coercion. Learn more about these terms and definitions in the Title IX Glossary.
If you are an ECU student, faculty or staff member and experience sexual misconduct, the University has a system of care and support to provide you with assistance. Filing a Title IX complaint is not the same as filing a police report. The Title IX complaint form is the best way for ECU to provide you with the services, resources and support available at the University.
