"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 educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972


Our Purpose

The specific purpose of the Northwest Association of Title IX Administrators is to eliminate barriers to education caused by incidents of sex-based or gender-based discrimination, harassment, or violence. We will realize this purpose by educating and providing opportunities for education for those in the states of Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington who administer and have oversight over Title IX policy at their institution, within their school district, or at the state level.  We intend to lead the nation in providing an access point for information and resources for our regional membership and look to model a cooperative partnership between K-12 and higher education entities to ensure fair, safe, and equity educational environments at all levels of education in our region.
