OEO Liaisons

Liaisons can:

  • Serve as the supportive eyes and ears on the ground in each school.
  • Provide information about OEO to those who request it.
  • Connect students and employees with OEO staff to receive resources and support - for sexual misconduct reporting, discrimination and/or harassment reporting and accommodation requests.
  • Support parties during OEO involvement.

Titel IX Adjudicators can:

  • Adjudicate student sexual misconduct matters as part of a three-member panel.
  • Review OEO investigative reports against the Tufts Sexual Misconduct Policy and determine findings and any corresponding sanctions.
