What is a Title IX Coordinator?

Title IX is a component of the United States Education Amendments of 1972. It is a federal law which protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity operated by recipients of federal financial assistance. Thus, ASU falls under the purview of Title IX. Subsequently, ASU has appointed a Title IX Coordinator to oversee ASU response to Title IX reports and formal complaints, develop training and educational programs for faculty, staff and students, as well as monitor trends and effectiveness of Title IX education efforts.

 How does the Title IX Coordinator serve ASU community members?

If you wish to file a formal complaint of Title IX sexual harassment, here are the steps you should take:

  • You can file your written document with your signature at TitleIXCoordinator@asu.edu or email the Title IX Coordinator to request an in-person appointment.
  • You will then be contacted to verify your intent to file a formal complaint of Title IX sexual harassment. The respondent is notified of the complaint and each party has the opportunity to provide information for review.

If a complaint does not fall under Title IX sexual harassment, it is possible that it may fall under another policy such as, the Student Code of ConductACD 401, or ACD 402. To learn more about the different reporting avenues available, view the Title IX Reporting Guide for Student Conduct and the Title IX Reporting Guide for Employee Conduct.
