Discrimination, Harassment and Title IX Reporting

Individuals who experience harassment or discrimination on the basis of their membership, or perceived membership, in one or more of the protected classes indicated above are encouraged to contact Wofford’s Title IX coordinator. The Title IX coordinator manages all campus investigations into alleged discrimination and harassment in partnership with the campus institutional equity case coordinators and, when warranted, external investigators.

The Title IX coordinator can assist individuals in making a report or initiating a formal complaint, connecting with campus and community resources, and accessing support with academics, housing and/or employment. Individuals may meet with the Title IX coordinator in person during regular business hours or may communicate via e-mail, phone or surface mail at any time.

Reports may be filed without first meeting with the Title IX coordinator. Individuals may also submit a report through the online Discrimination and Harassment Reporting Form. Reports can be submitted anonymously, but anonymous reports may limit the college’s ability to address reports.

All reports will be reviewed and addressed using Wofford’s Nondiscrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy and Procedures.
