The Title IX Coordinator is available to provide information to students regarding the College’s Title IX program, including policies, investigation process, and interim and other remedies, and works with other on-campus resources as appropriate. The Title IX Coordinator is also available to work with off-campus resources and offices at other institutions of higher education. The Title IX Coordinator takes primary responsibility for assessment of effectiveness of the College’s Title IX program

 

Title IX was enacted in 1972 to prevent discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs that receive federal funds. It has long been used to promote gender equity in sports. In 2011, the federal government expanded the interpretation of Title IX to include how colleges and universities investigate complaints of sexual violence.

Confidentiality

  • Police and the Title IX Coordinator are non-confidential resources and will treat the information you give them with extreme sensitivity. In some cases, they may need to use the information to address a threat or maintain safety.
  • If you report criminal activity on campus a specially trained Campus Police officer will respond and investigate and share the information with the Town of Wellesley Police because the College is within the jurisdiction of the Town.
  • If you report criminal activity that occurred outside of Wellesley College, Campus Police will take a preliminary report documenting the basic facts and will be available to assist in working with the law enforcement department with jurisdiction.

 

Wellesley takes seriously its commitment to empowering students to end sexual misconduct.  All students are encouraged to complete Not Anymore, an online education program that will provide you with information about sexual misconduct on college campuses and how to be an active bystander, as well as opportunities for personal reflection.
