The Department of Education’s (Department’s) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) provides this fact sheet to assist school communities, including students, parents, families, educators, and elementary, secondary, and postsecondary educational institutions, in understanding that diversity, equity, and inclusion training and similar activities in most factual circumstances are consistent with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VI).

Title VI prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or national origin in the programs or activities of all recipients of Federal financial assistance. OCR enforces Title VI with respect to recipients of Federal financial assistance from the Department, including States, school districts, public schools, and public and private colleges.
