Title IX Coordinator

Emerson College prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender/sex (including pregnancy), gender identity/expression, race, color, religion or religious creed, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, disability or handicap, age, genetics, marital status, veteran status and any other category protected by law (“protected class status”).  Discrimination on the basis of sex violates Emerson College policy as well as a number of state and federal laws including Title IX of the Educational Amendments Act of 1972. 

Consistent with the requirements of Title IX, its regulations and guidance provided by the Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, Emerson College has designated a Title IX Coordinator.  The Title IX Coordinator is charged with primary responsibility for coordinating the College’s Title IX compliance efforts, including attention to its policies and procedures against sex discrimination, sex harassment (including rape, sexual assault, battery and coercion) as well any related retaliation. The Title IX coordinator’s responsibilities also include the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX.  

In this role, the Title IX Coordinator is responsible for monitoring and overseeing the College’s investigation of any complaints of unlawful sex discrimination, sex based harassment including rape, sexual assault, battery and coercion, and any related retaliation.  At Emerson College, the Title IX Coordinator also oversees the investigation of allegations of discrimination on other bases covered by the Emerson College Policy against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation

Emerson College’s policy Against Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation applies to all members of the College Community, including, students, faculty, and staff.  The College strongly encourages all members of the Emerson College community who believe that a member of the Emerson community has engaged in discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to sex discrimination, sexual harassment or sexual assault, to file a complaint with the Title IX Coordinator or any person identified in the Emerson College Policy Against Discrimination Harassment and Retaliation. 

Any college employee who receives a complaint of discrimination, discriminatory harassment, or sexual assault, is expected to immediately share the information received with the College’s Title IX Coordinator so that the Coordinator can take steps to appropriately investigate and address the complaint.
