Title IX Committee.
The Title IX committee is formally charged with advising the Title IX Coordinator on matters relating to the University’s compliance with Title IX Education Amendments of 1972 and Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, as well as state of New Jersey civil rights laws and Drew’s sexual misconduct and human rights policies and related procedures. These deal with nondiscrimination on the basis of protected classes of sex, gender, gender identity and expression, and affectional or sexual orientation. While much of the committee work may be in identifying prevention and educational program and policy needs regarding sexual and relationship violence and stalking, it is also charged with monitoring, evaluating, and determining if equity exists in all areas of the University. The appointment to this committee is done by either the University Title IX Coordinator, or through election by appropriate community body (e.g., Faculty, DSA, Student Government).
