Memo to Faculty and Staff: Non-Discrimination of Students on the Basis of Pregnancy, Childbirth and Related Conditions
May 9, 2013 | Bulletin
This memorandum is being sent to inform and remind the University community of the University’s obligations not to discriminate against students on the basis of pregnancy, childbirth and related conditions.
The University’s Policy on Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination makes clear that CUNY does not discriminate against persons on the basis of sex in its educational programs and activities. The legal prohibition against sex discrimination in education comes from, among other places, 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.
