Title IX at the University of Baltimore

 

The University of Baltimore is committed to creating a campus that is safe from sexual misconduct, including sexual and gender-based harassment, sexual violence, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation and sexual intimidation. The University actively seeks to:

  • prevent issues of sexual misconduct by educating and providing resources to raise awareness of these issues
  • recognize, respond and provide support to those who have experienced sexual harassment and/or have been the victim of a sexual offense.

Oversight of Sexual Misconduct Complaints

As part of this commitment, the University has designated a Title IX coordinator. The coordinator is responsible for ensuring that appropriate standards and requirements are met to afford a complainant prompt and equitable resolution and for educating the campus community. The coordinator will review all cases annually to look for potential patterns or systemic concerns and will implement remedies when necessary.
