The Sexual Misconduct Reporting Liaisons (Title IX) are university employees who are available to receive reports of sex/gender and other discrimination/bias/harassment at Tufts, including sexual harassment and sexual assault. The liaisons can provide information regarding available resources, but are not responsible for investigating reports. Rather, they will direct the information they receive to the university’s Title IX Coordinator in the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Roles and Definitions

Panel members are trained staff and faculty members from around Tufts that can:

  • Be chosen to sit on an OEO Sexual Misconduct Adjudication Process (SMAP) panel.
  • Adjudicate student sexual misconduct matters on a three-member panel.
  • Review OEO investigative reports against the Tufts Sexual Misconduct Policy and determine findings and any corresponding sanctions.

Liaisons are trained staff and faculty members from around Tufts, positioned to act as a conduit to the Office of Equal Opportunity. As community members, liaisons:

  • Serve as the supportive eyes and ears on the ground in each school, providing information about OEO to those who may request it and can support parties during OEO involvement.
  • Connect students and employees with an OEO employee so they can receive resources and support including help reporting accommodation requests, harassment, discrimination and sexual misconduct matters.
