Home / President / Title IX / Contact Information



Your Title IX team responds to reports, concerns, and inquiries about harassment, discrimination, and sexual misconduct, which includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. We assist students, employees, program participants, and campus visitors. The Title IX Coordinator and Volunteer Liaisons are knowledgeable about options for complaint resolution. Federal regulations require the University to take immediate action to eliminate harassment, discrimination, or sexual misconduct, prevent its recurrence, and address its effects. The Title IX Office is located on the upper level of the DYC Academic Office 206. Phone 605.642.6590. Email addresses for each team member are hyperlinked (see below) with each team member's name.
