Title IX is a comprehensive U.S. federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. The principal objective of Title IX is to use federal money in educational programs that do not support any type of sex discrimination and provide individual citizens effective protection from any practices base on sex discrimination. Title IX law prohibits sexual harassment as well as sexual violence such as rape, sexual assault, and sexual coercion; it applies to all people regardless of gender, and applies regardless of whether or not a criminal report is filed.

Please Read President Julian Schuster’s Message on Coronavirus
As a global educator with operations and programs in China and other countries affected by Coronavirus, the university’s administration is monitoring developments and adhering to guidance posted by the U.S. State Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Students studying abroad at Webster campuses or partner institutions are also receiving communications, advice, and a reminder of important contact information. Because universities in China are delaying the start of their spring terms at the direction of the government, the start of Webster’s MBA program has been delayed accordingly.
