Our Title IX Office is kicking off the new year and new semester with a few key changes.
First: We've moved! Title IX's home—The Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI)—is now located on the second floor of Webster Hall on Fifth Avenue. If you stop by to visit, please come to the elevator at the back of the first floor and ring the buzzer for ODI.
Next: We continue to grow! Please join me in welcoming Zach Davis, who will be responsible for responding to and investigating both Title IX and Title VII complaints.
Finally, an important reminder: Our Title IX team—which includes three full-time investigators, an outreach manager, and a Title IX Coordinator—is here to serve the entire University of Pittsburgh community. Conversations related to possible federal regulation changes have no impact on our steadfast commitment to addressing your needs and to supporting a safe campus environment for all.
About Title IX
Title IX is landmark federal civil rights legislation that prohibits sex discrimination in education. Title IX includes sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence. It encompasses attempted or completed rape or sexual assault, as well as sexual harassment, stalking, voyeurism, exhibitionism, verbal or physical sexuality-based threats or abuse, and intimate partner violence. The Title IX Office at Pitt is here to answer questions and assist any member of the campus community.
