The University of Massachusetts Amherst

University Title IX Coordination Team

What is Title IX and why is it important?

The University has always prioritized its efforts to combat sexual harassment and sexual violence by providing both proactive and reactive resources to ameliorate the devastating effects on victim/survivors and on our Campus Community as a whole.  Additionally, the University has created the Title IX Coordination Team to further evaluate, coordinate and address sexual harassment and sexual violence on our campus.

The Title IX Coordination Team, is comprised of the Office of Equal Opportunity, the Center for Women and Community, Department of Athletics, the Dean of Students Office, Center for Counseling and Psychological Health, University Health Services, the Faculty & Staff Assistance Program, Residential Life, International Programs, Center for Student Development, UMass Amherst Police Department and the Provost’s Office; it meets weekly to look at specific incidences of sexual harassment and sexual violence and to assure resources and responses are holistically coordinated across the University.  Additionally, the Coordination Team ensures that Title IX education and training is provided on campus. For any questions or to report a Title IX matter you can contact the Title IX Coordination Team at (413) 545-3464 or equalopportunityconcerns@admin.umass.edu
