Deputy Title IX Coordinators
Deputy Title IX Coordinators are available to consult with members of the community about their concerns and questions related to sex- or gender-based discrimination, including sexual misconduct. They support all members of the Yale community and are knowledgeable about policies, resources, and options for addressing concerns. Deputy Title IX Coordinators serve as the primary point of contact for individuals seeking supportive measures.
Title IX Supportive Measures
- Supportive measures are non-disciplinary, non-punitive, individualized services offered to restore or preserve access to Yale’s educational programs or activities, which can be accessed regardless of whether or not someone wants to move forward with a formal UWC complaint. Many supportive measures are also available to individuals whose sexual misconduct experience occurred before their time at Yale and/or involves non-Yale affiliated parties. Deputy Title IX Coordinators can assist complainants and respondents with a range of supportive measures based on the specifics of each case, including but not limited to:
- Academic accommodations (e.g. tutoring, deadline extensions, course changes)
- Workplace accommodations (e.g. schedule changes, reassignments, leaves of absences)
- Residential accommodations on campus (e.g. change in room assignments, residential college transfers)
- Other accommodations, determined on a case-by-case basis (e.g. social and public spaces)
- Many accommodations can be made while protecting your identity. Some may require the Deputy Title IX Coordinator to work with other University personnel, such as academic deans, Human Resources, and housing staff. The Coordinator will always contact you before taking any action and will not share any details of your experience with other personnel.
- Deputy Title IX Coordinators can work with you to create a voluntary, mutual agreement to limit contact with another individual, allowing you to pursue your activities at Yale without further interactions. These restrictions generally preclude in-person, telephone, electronic or third-party communication, and may limit access to certain areas of campus.
- When a formal complaint of sexual misconduct is filed with the University Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC), a no-contact order will be issued and may be continued following the UWC process. A Deputy Title IX Coordinator will work with the parties in a formal complaint to implement the no-contact order.
- Visa and immigration assistance
- If you have concerns about how a complaint or an accommodation may affect your immigration status, Deputy Title IX Coordinators can liaise with the Office of International Students and Scholars at Yale (OISS), where immigration advisors can provide guidance on how accommodations may affect the visa status(es) of international students, scholars, and their spouses or dependents (including Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals students).
- Additional accommodations for individuals with disabilities
- Special arrangements can be made for individuals with disabilities who are seeking assistance from the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response & Education (SHARE) Center, Title IX, the Yale Police Department, and the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct (UWC). The Title IX Office can coordinate with Student Accessibility Services (students) or the Office of Institutional Equity and Accessibility (staff and faculty) in order to provide necessary assistance.
