Office of the Title IX Coordinator


Title IX Steering Committee

The Title IX Steering Committee provides strategic guidance for Title IX-related work at all UW campuses and locations.

President Ana Mari Cauce appointed a Title IX steering committee in 2015 to provide ongoing strategic oversight and leadership for the University’s work on sexual assault and harassment prevention. In 2017, she expanded the charge to encompass all areas of Title IX, including athletics, STEM, LGBTQ, and pregnant and parenting faculty, staff, and students.
