Title IX Policy
Messiah College is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, and provides many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination. One of those resources is our Title IX program. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination on the basis of sex/gender, (this includes sexual misconduct) in educational access, programs and activities.
Amanda Coffey, Vice President for Human Resources & Compliance, oversees and provides leadership for the College’s Title IX program. The Title IX program is designed to provide education and training campus-wide on gender discrimination and sexual misconduct as well as provide members of the College community with resources and support for compliant resolution. The Title IX program is made up of administrators who, along with Amanda, carry out investigations, resolve complaints, address compliance-related responsibilities and process appropriate reporting. Specifically:
Together, these coordinators play an integral role in carrying out the College’s commitment to provide a positive learning, teaching and working environment for the entire community.
