Roles

Title IX Compliance Team

The Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Investigators work together to review and update policy, procedures, and implement training and educational programs for students, faculty, and staff.

Title IX Coordinator’s Roles

The College’s Title IX Coordinator has primary responsibility for coordinating the College’s efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities under Title IX, which prohibits sex discrimination in all the operations of this College, as well as retaliation for the purpose of interfering with any right or privilege secured by Title IX.

The Title IX Coordinator oversees the College’s response to reports and complaints that involve possible sex discrimination to monitor outcomes, identify and address any patterns of sexual misconduct, and assess effects on the campus climate, so the College can address issues that affect the wider school community.

Specific responsibilities that fall under the Title IX Coordinator are outlined on the document “Title IX Coordinator Role and Responsibilities.”

Interested parties may contact the Title IX Coordinator in order to:

  • Seek information about courses of action available to resolve reports or complaints that involve potential sexual misconduct
  • File a complaint or make a report of sexual misconduct
  • Notify the College of an incident or policy or procedure that may raise potential Title IX concerns
  • Get information about available resources (including confidential resources) and support Services related to sexual misconduct
  • Ask questions about the College’s policies and procedures related to sexual misconduct
  • Discuss options for training and educational programming

As the supervisor of the investigation, the Title IX Coordinator will work with the investigators to assist in the investigation of a complaint and supervise the investigation, assure remedial action takes place, comply with timelines, and provide communication to all parties. If the Title IX Coordinator is unavailable or is a respondent, an investigator will fulfill Title IX Coordinator’s function under this policy.

Deputy Title IX Investigators Role

Deputy Title IX Investigators will typically assist the Title IX Coordinator with an investigation. However, the Title IX Coordinator reserves the right to conduct the investigation alone, hire an outside investigator, involve both Deputy Title IX Investigators, or designate other appropriate College official(s) to investigate the complaint.
