Title IX at Georgetown University

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination based on sex in any educational programs, which includes sexual harassment or any acts of sexual misconduct. Title IX requires the University, upon becoming aware of any incident of sexual harassment and misconduct to respond appropriately to protect and maintain the safety of the University community, including students, faculty, and staff. 

To achieve this, the University has appointed a Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators, listed below. The Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators help provide a safe educational and work environment to students and employees as they provide information about available on- and off-campus resources, explain the University’s formal complaint process, help individuals navigate through the University's systems, and monitor the University's climate with respect to sexual misconduct.

Please note that the Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinators are not confidential resources. Students and employees who wish to keep the information confidential should contact the University's confidential counselors.
