  • Notice of Non-Discrimination on the Basis of Sex

    DePaul University does not discriminate on the basis of sex, which includes gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, parental status and family relationship status, in its education programs or activities. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and certain other federal and state laws, prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex in employment, as well as in all education programs and activities operated by the university (both on and off campus). The protection against discrimination on the basis of sex includes sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual violence and gender based dating and domestic violence and stalking.
