Title IX

Title IX is a federal civil rights law passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972. This law protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs or activities that receive Federal financial assistance. Title IX states that: “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 education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.”

The Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for students, faculty, staff, and the public. We are a diverse community dedicated to creating and providing an environment for learning, living, and working that’s free from discrimination, harassment, including sexual violence and misconduct, and retaliation. IAIA responds promptly and effectively to all reports and will take appropriate action to prevent, correct, and when necessary, discipline behavior that violates policy.


Reports regarding a potential Title IX violation can be made to the Title IX Coordinator Laurie Logan Brayshaw by phone at (505) 424-5790, email at, or in-person at on the Second Floor of the Lloyd Kiva New Welcome Center in the President’s Suite Room 201B.
