New Mexico Highlands University prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in its education programs and activities.
Such discrimination is illegal under a federal law known as Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”). This federal law prohibits sex discrimination in federally funded education programs and activities. It states:
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.
Sex discrimination under Title IX includes sexual harassment and other forms of sexual misconduct such as sexual assault, sexual exploitation, and dating or domestic violence. Title IX also prohibits retaliation for making a complaint or otherwise participating in claims of sex discrimination.
If you wish to report any form of sex discrimination covered by Title IX, please contact Ruth Mariampolski, Title IX Coordinator at 505-454-3363, firstname.lastname@example.org or TIX@nmhu.edu. If you are currently enrolled or employed at Highlands, you can also use the internal report form.
