The Concord University Title IX Team is trained to receive and respond to complaints of Title IX infractions. Our role is to investigate reported misconduct and other gender equality concerns, support those involved, maximize campus safety, and promote knowledge and understanding of creating an environment free from gender-based discrimination. The Title IX Team can help you obtain confidential support, connect with resources (academic, housing, work, transportation, counseling, etc.), access protective measures, and file a criminal complaint with local law enforcement. Concord University’s Policy No. 37 Nondiscrimination, Sexual Misconduct and Other Forms of Harassment can be viewed HERE.
