What's New in Title IX?

In Fall 2017, the University of Alaska conducted a Climate Survey to better understand students' experiences with Title IX related incidents, and their assessment of their university's climate. The final report is available for download from the University of Alaska Title IX Compliance site.

For more information about Title IX at UAS or to make a report, please select the Reporting Tab on this webpage or contact the Title IX Coordinator at 907-796-6036 or laklein@alaska.edu.

What is Title IX?

“No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any educational program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 to the 1964 Civil Rights Act

Title IX is most commonly associated with equal opportunity for women in athletics. However, it is so much more than that. Title IX is a federal law prohibiting sex discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funding. While the two most common applications of the law are towards athletics and sexual harassment, Title IX also applies to: admissions, financial aid, academic matters, career services, counseling and medical services, and hiring and employment.

All members of the university community, guests and visitors have a right to be free from sexual misconduct. Sexual misconduct includes but is not limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence. If you have concerns or need to report an incident, please contact a Title IX Coordinator or Investigator.

Biography:

I've loved living in Alaska since I first arrived here at the tender age of 2.  I've been blessed to see much of the state having lived in Chugiak, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchikan.  The beauty and serenity of this special place we live (even with the large amounts of rain) is inspiring.  After graduating from a little Alaskan high school (we had a graduating class of 18 students) I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, graduating with a BA in Business Administration in 1990.  I 've had the pleasure of working with college students for over twenty years and I am inspired by the perseverance of our students as well as the power of education to help students change their lives for the better.

Helpful Information to Share with Survivors of Sexual Assault

  • Survivors can speak with someone at any time. Reporting is always a choice. Choosing one route does not exclude other options. Survivors should pursue whatever routes will be most helpful to recovery, and that pathway may change over time.
  • Confidential support is available through UAS Counseling Services (for local and distance students), community mental health care providers, religious leaders and the local women/family shelters.
  • If a survivor wishes to file a criminal complaint, she/he should contact their local police department. Advocates (available through local shelters) and attorneys can accompany survivors.
