Who is the College's Title IX Coordinator

The Title IX Coordinator oversees the prompt investigation of complaints alleging sexual harassment; reviews findings as to whether sexual harassment occurred; reviews proposed remedies (including interim measures) necessary to address the sexual harassment, eliminate any hostile environment, and prevent its reoccurrence; and serves as consultant to any disciplinary hearing panel where sexual harassment has been determined to have occurred to ensure the Colleges compliance with Title IX. The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the development, scheduling, and implementation of regular events hosted by or supported by the College leadership on campus to raise awareness in the campus community about all forms of sex discrimination (including sexual harassment and sexual assault) and the Colleges policies and procedures regarding such matters, so as to reinforce to the College community the importance of this issue to the College administration.

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for providing information to students and employees regarding their Title IX rights and responsibilities, including information about the resources available on and off campus, the formal and informal complaint processes, the availability of interim measures, and the ability to file a complaint with local law enforcement and complaint with the University simultaneously.

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the development, scheduling, and implementation of necessary periodic Title IX training for the College community, including students and employees.

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for periodic review and assessment of the Colleges Title IX policies and procedures, to ensure that they are clear and consolidated to the maximum extent possible to provide an efficient resource for students, faculty, and staff.

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for coordinating the development and implementation of annual assessments (i.e. surveys) of campus climate with regard to sexual harassment and sexual violence.
