What is the role of the Title IX Coordinator?

To oversee the processes that address reported concerns or claims of sex or gender based discrimination, harassment, sexual assault, intimate partner violence, and stalking. This includes working closely with Student Affairs, Academic Affairs, Human Resources, Diversity & Inclusion and other offices to provide educational programming for the campus community that raises awareness and encourages reporting.

We encourage any member of the campus community to report, confidentially discuss, or raise questions and concerns regarding any instance of sexual assault, stalking or interpersonal violence. We also encourage anyone who is undecided about proceeding with criminal or campus charges as well as those who may not label a given experience as rape, sexual assault, stalking or intimate partner violence to speak with a Title IX coordinator. The Title IX coordinator will help to identify the appropriate responses or resolutions that may be available through both policy and law, coordinate timely investigation and communication, and assist in obtaining any appropriate intermediate measures and/or internal and external support services.
