Our Mission

ATIXA provides a professional association for school and college Title IX Coordinators and administrators who are interested in serving their districts and campuses more effectively. Since 1972, Title IX has proved to be an increasingly powerful leveling tool, helping to advance gender equity in schools and colleges.

Title IX

Title IX’s benefits can be found in promoting equity in academic and athletics programs, preventing hostile environments on the basis of sex, prohibiting sexual harassment and sexual violence, protecting from retaliation and remedying the effects of other gender-based forms of discrimination.

Every school district and college in the United States is required to have a Title IX Coordinator who oversees implementation, training and compliance with Title IX. ATIXA brings campus and district Title IX Coordinators and administrators into professional collaboration to explore best practices, share resources and advance the worthy goal of gender equity in education.

ATIXA Model Policy Updated to Reflect New

Campus SaVE Provisions 

ATIXA is distributing freely and publicly its transformative Gender-Based and Sexual Misconduct Model Policy, newly updated to reflect Campus SaVE Provisions. This policy has helped hundreds of campuses as they strive to comply with Title IX and related legislation, as well as protect the safety of their communities. Let it help yours.

Access the Model Policy as a PDF here and as a Word document here.
