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.
Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex: including pregnancy, parenting and all related conditions, such as abortion, miscarriage, or childbirth, in all educational programs and activities that receive federal funding, which includes UMFK.
It applies to both men and women.
All students that might be, are or have been pregnant, must have the same access to school programs and educational opportunities that all students have. Both men and women are affected by pregnancy related conditions as the law covers childbirth and those newly parenting.
UMFK must provide equitable responses in all areas of the University for individuals who are pregnant or affected by pregnancy related conditions, including academics, student employment, athletics, university activities outside of class, and tutoring or other accommodations.
We do not discriminate.
In complying with the letter & spirit of applicable laws and in perusing goals of diversity, the University shall not discriminate on the ground of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, including transgender status or gender expression, national origin or citizenship status, age, disability, genetic information or veterans status in employment, education, & all other areas of the university.
