Title IX Coordinator

"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance." Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)

Each university receiving federal financial assistance must designate at least one professional employee as the Title IX Coordinator to oversee compliance efforts and investigate any compliant of sexual discrimination or harassment. 

The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for monitoring the overall implementation of Title IX for the university and coordinating compliance with Title IX in all areas covered by the implementing regulations. Major duties include, but are not limited to, monitoring the following areas:

  • Admissions and Recruitment
  • Educational Programs and Activities
  • Housing
  • Comparable facilities
  • Access to course offerings
  • Participation in extracurricular activities
  • Financial assistance
  • Student employment assistance
  • Health Services and student insurance
  • Marital and parental status
  • Athletics & physical education

Adoption of procedures to provide prompt and equitable resolution of complaints is a critical function of the Title IX Coordinator. The Coordinator can assist persons alleging sexual harassment or discrimination in filing their grievance(s) and/or overseeing the step-by-step procedure to be sure that appropriate time frames are met. If the Title IX Coordinator does not conduct the investigation of complaints, the Coordinator should receive information about any grievances filed related to Title IX compliance. This procedure allows the institution to identify any patterns or repeat offenders that may be missed otherwise. The Coordinator should also receive sufficient information through the process so that the Coordinator can provide necessary guidance or information to ensure that the institution carries out its responsibilities under Title IX.

The Title IX Coordinator at Georgia Southwestern State University is Gena S. Wilson, who also serves as the Director of Human Resources.
