About This Resource

All higher education institutions and K-12 schools that accept federal funding must comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, which prohibits sex discrimination – including sexual harassment and sexual violence – by educational institutions. Title IX is enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) within the Department of Education. Since the 1970s, OCR has required every school to designate at least one Title IX Coordinator, who has overall responsibility for ensuring the school’s compliance with Title IX. A critical aspect of Title IX compliance is a school’s efforts to prevent and respond effectively to sexual harassment. This checklist contains United Educators’ recommendations pertaining to the Title IX Coordinator position, focusing on key knowledge and skills, essential duties of the role, and steps an institution should take to ensure the coordinator is visible and accessible to the campus community.
