Title IX Team

Community members have the option to contact a Coordinator either by email or phone. You may feel more comfortable reaching out to the Deputy Title IX Coordinator assigned to your specific school or department, while others may prefer contacting a Deputy Title IX Coordinator from another part of the campus. You can pick the approach that works best for you! Concerns can also be reported directly to the Equal Opportunity Office (EOO) by completing an incident report.

We do want to remind you that the Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators are not confidential resources. If you wish to keep your information confidential, we encourage you to reach out to one of the University’s confidential resources.
