The Office of Student Affairs Compliance and Title IX oversees compliance with privacy and nondiscrimination laws, regulations, and policies as they apply to students at Rutgers University—New Brunswick. We are committed to supporting the Rutgers community as a resource and provider of education and training in order to best serve our students, the local community, and the State of New Jersey.
Our Office also serves as the main contact for all Title IX-related issues at Rutgers University–New Brunswick. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from discrimination based on sex in any educational program or activity at institutions of higher education that receive federal financial assistance. Sexual harassment, which includes acts of sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX. The University is dedicated to providing an environment free from discrimination based on sex and provides a number of resources and services to assist students, faculty, and staff in addressing issues involving sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking, and relationship violence.
The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for overseeing and responding to all Title IX complaints for Rutgers University—New Brunswick students, developing training and education programs for faculty, staff, and students, and monitoring federal guidance as it relates to Title IX. We encourage victims of sexual harassment, sexual violence, stalking, and relationship violence to report incidents to the Title IX Coordinator, and to seek support from the confidential resources available on our campus and in the local community.
