The Office of Title IX and Nondiscrimination is committed to facilitating an equitable response and resolution to all reported incidents of discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, relationship violence, stalking, and related misconduct.

This role also supports the Office of Title IX and Nondiscrimination with a focus on awareness, prevention, and educational training and outreach. This position works closely with many campus departments such as Campus Safety, Residential Life, Student Involvement, Counseling, and the Care Coordinator.
