Title IX and Sexual Violence

Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 states that "no person in the United States shall on the basis of sex 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."  The KU Medical Center prohibits all forms of sex-based discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual violence and assault, and is committed to preventing sex discrimination that impacts any person's opportunity to participate in or benefit from the University's programs and activities. 

All KUMC employees are expected to report incidents of sexual harassment or sexual assault of which they become aware.  Please review the KU Medical Center's Title IX Resolution Process for more information regarding the procedures for preventing, reporting and investigating Title IX violations.

If you or someone you know has been subjected to sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or sexual assault, please submit a report using this online form or contact University Title IX Coordinator: Lauren Jones McKown at
