Two Title IX Coordinator finalists to make campus presentations

March 30, 2017

The Office of Compliance invites the university community to attend presentations given by the finalists for the University of Wisconsin–Madison Title IX Coordinator position.

Title IX (“title nine”) is a federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. The Title IX coordinator is responsible for coordinating the university’s efforts to prevent sex discrimination from occurring and responding promptly and appropriately if it occurs; and establishing procedures for receiving and responding to complaints of sex discrimination.

Each finalist will provide a 30 minute presentation on the basics of Title IX as it applies to higher education, followed by a 15 minute audience Q & A.
