Office of Civil Rights & Title IX

The Office of Civil Rights & Title IX strives to provide equal opportunities for students, faculty, and staff, ensuring that everyone has the chance to thrive and succeed.

Committed to Supporting Tigers

The Office of Civil Rights & Title IX (OCR & TIX) oversees the university’s commitment to providing a place to learn and work that is free from harassment and discrimination. This includes the right to enter, study, learn, work, be promoted, and succeed. To meet this critical mission, the office engages in programming, awareness activities, supportive measures, accessibility planning, employee accommodations, and investigations.

Beyond Compliance

The Office of Civil Rights & Title IX is tasked with overseeing compliance of federal and state laws ensuring equal opportunity including Title IX, Title VII, Title II, Power-based Violence regulations, and more. But the work goes far beyond compliance. Tigers are front and center of the work we do and the work of the office is aligned to ensure Tigers can thrive and succeed.

Help is here.

Sexual violence including sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, stalking, and power-based violence can have an impact on student success. The office provides prevention programming, supportive measures, and formal and informal resolutions to keep students and employees connected to academics and work. Sexual violence affects us all.
