Non-Discrimination of Students on the Basis of Pregnancy, Childbirth and Related Conditions

The CUNY Policy on Equal Opportunity, Non-Discrimination and Against Sexual Harassment prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities, in compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (“Title IX”). Title IX prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex—including pregnancy and related conditions—in educational programs and activities that are eligible for federal funding.
