The HLS Title IX Program Officer serves in a neutral role and supports all members of the HLS community.  The Title IX Program Officer has specialized training and experience in responding to disclosures of sexual and gender-based harassment in the Harvard community.

The HLS Title IX Program Officer can:

  • Provide information about available resources
  • Help arrange supportive measures, including:
    • Course-related extensions and adjustments
    • University-issued and enforced no contact orders
    • Work and/or course schedule adjustments
    • Changes in housing or seating
    • Leaves of absence
    • Increased monitoring of specific areas on campus
  • Facilitate informal resolution, as appropriate, between the involved parties if both parties agree, with the goal of reaching a mutually agreeable resolution
  • Provide information on applicable policies and procedures
  • Provide information about the formal complaint process

Formal complaints against HLS students, staff, and faculty can be submitted to the HLS Title IX Program Officer.  Formal complaints against staff members will be provided to the Office of Dispute Resolution.  Speaking with the HLS Title IX Program Officer or University Title IX Coordinator is, however, not the same as filing a formal complaint.  The HLS Title IX Program Officer or University Title IX Coordinator can serve as a resource to help you make an informed decision about which pathways are right for you.

While conversations with the HLS Title IX Program Officer or University Title IX Coordinator are not confidential, these individuals will handle any information that you provide with the utmost discretion and sensitivity and will share it with others only on a need-to-know basis.
