Reporting and Title IX

A word on confidentiality - Conversations with the Title IX Coordinator and associates are kept as confidential as possible, but information about incidents of sexual misconduct must be shared with relevant administrators and others if the College needs to take action for reasons of community safety. In all cases, the wishes of the person initiating the conversation are given full consideration.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs. The Title IX Coordinator oversees and provides leadership for the College’s Title IX deputies, the administrators who carry out investigations, compliance-related responsibilities and reporting. They also oversee education and training campus-wide regarding sex discrimination and sexual misconduct. ‘Know Your IX’ is a great resource that explains Title IX as it specifically related to sexual misconduct on college campuses and the types of options that are available to survivors.
