  • Responsible for monitoring full compliance with all procedural requirements, record-keeping, and timeframes outlined in this policy; and
  • Responsible for overseeing training, prevention, and education efforts, and any reviews of climate and culture.
  • Deputy Title IX Coordinator/s for each campus are responsible for tracking and reporting to the University Title IX Coordinator all incidents of sexual misconduct on their respective campus, and will work with the University Title IX Coordinator to ensure that the appropriate designated campus officials are involved in investigating and adjudicating complaints according to the University’s applicable policies and procedures. Generally, when the complaint is against an employee or third party, the Deputy Title IX Coordinator will conduct the investigation.
