Title IX and other federal and state laws collectively prohibit discrimination based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, pregnant or parenting status, and LGBTQ+ identity.
Inaugural Title IX annual report
The inaugural University of Washington Title IX Annual Report on Sex- and Gender-Based Violence & Harassment includes information from two years—July 1, 2019, through July 30, 2021.
The report includes information about four primary areas: support and resources, investigations and adjudications, prevention and education, and leadership and policy. This first report is primarily focused on UW students; we anticipate future reports will include information about UW employees’ experiences and investigations.
The Office of the Title IX Coordinator held two Zoom-based Community Conversations on May 11 and May 19, 2022, during which participants had the opportunity to ask questions and share observations about the report. We continue to welcome questions and/or observations about the report. Please email email@example.com to provide information or ask a specific question.
Annual report FAQs
It’s considered a best practice for Title IX to publish annual reports. Students, faculty, and staff have also requested this type of information from our office.
We agree that an institution, such as UW, should be transparent about this type of information, and we wanted to be responsive.
We chose to focus on student experiences and investigations of students in this first report because students initially asked for this information about other UW students.
We anticipate the next report will include information about investigations of employees, and we will be working with the University Complaint Investigation and Resolution Office (UCIRO), Human Resources, and Academic Human Resources to present information about investigations of employees and the follow-up from investigations when and if an employee is found responsible for violating a University policy.
We expect to publish the report on a biennial basis.
