T he Department of Education's Title IX regulations have always required that institutions designate someone on campus to coordinate Title IX compliance. The April 4, 2011, Dear Colleague Letter ("DCL") formalizes the Title IX Coordinator's role, and confirms its importance to the entire campus community.
Title IX Coordinators are responsible for overseeing all of an institution's Title IX compliance efforts. This includes gender discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, sexual assault, and athletics. These are significant responsibilities. To be effective, Coordinators should be well versed in the procedures, policies, and training mechanisms in place for addressing campus sexual harassment, sexual violence, and the law's unique application to athletics. It is crucial that Title IX Coordinators receive appropriate training to successfully handle the position's multiple responsibilities.
