Ad Hoc Title IX Officers 

Title IX Officers are University employees (both faculty and staff) who are specially trained to serve on an ad hoc basis in a number of different roles.  Generally, Title IX Officers may serve as facilitators of an informal resolution process (either Pre-Complaint Resolution or Agreed Resolutions after a Formal Complaint has been filed), Investigators, members of a Complaint Review Panel (“CRP”), Process Advisors, or members of the Appeal Review Panel (“ARP”).  The Vice President of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion or designee, in consultation with the Title IX Coordinator, appoints the Ad Hoc Title IX Officers annually.

Training Information

Title IX Officers receive regular training on the following topics:

  • the definition of sexual harassment;
  • the scope of the University’s education programs and activities;
  • how to conduct an investigation and grievance process including hearings, appeals, and informal resolution processes, as applicable;
  • how to apply definitions under the Sexual Harassment and Interpersonal Violence Policy consistently and impartially as to consent; 
  • how to serve impartially, including by avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias;
  • on any technology to be used at a live hearing or in any other stage of the Resolution Processes;
  • on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about the Complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant;
  • issues of relevance to create an investigative report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence;
  • other topics as necessary to adequately serve in their role as an investigator, or member of the CRP or ARP.

At the discretion of the Title IX Coordinator, the University may also retain external contractors to serve as ad hoc Title IX Officers.
