Title IX Coordinator

What do they do?

The Title IX Coordinator role is to ensure that the University is in compliance with the Education Amendments of 1972: Title IX.  This federal law 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.”  Put in other words, Title IX requires that the University not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, veteran or marital status, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or disability in admission or access to, treatment in or employment in its programs and activities.

In relation to sexual violence this means ensuring that the policies in place to address these incidents are followed and that the appropriate accommodations are made as necessary to ensure that the complainant is no longer in a hostile environment which could interfere with their education.  They are also responsible for aiding in the creation and execution of programing and training to eliminate sex discrimination within the university community.
