“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.”

Pregnancy and Parenting Support

Parenting and pregnant students have rights under Title IX law. We have supports that may be implemented to assist students as they navigate parenthood.

Minnesota State Board Policies and System Procedures

“No person shall be discriminated against in the terms and conditions of employment, personnel practices or access to and participation in, programs, services and activities with regard to race, sex, color, creed, religion, age, national origin, disability, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
