If you think your educational institution is not treating girls and women equally to boys and men, here is who to contact:

1. Your school or college may have someone on staff to handle Title IX
gender equity complaints. Contact this Title IX Coordinator to register
complaint.

2. Your school or college may have a grievance procedure. Consult this grievance procedure for guidelines on how to file your complaint.

3. You can file a complaint with the Department of Education's Office
of Civil Rights (OCR) by contacting the OCR officer responsible for your state. Generally you should make such a report as soon as possible because there are time limits for reporting. To find the OCR office for your state or district.
