10.16 Harvard University Title IX Coordinators

On May 6, 2020, the United States Department of Education issued new Title IX regulations with an effective implementation date of August 14, 2020. As a result, and consistent with Federal regulatory requirements, the below Policy and procedures will be revised and replaced; new versions will be available on the Title IX website as of August 14, 2020.

HMS is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy educational and work environment in which no member of the Harvard community is, on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity, excluded from participation in, denied the benefits of, or subjected to discrimination in any University program or activity.

Please see the University-wide Sexual and Gender-Based Harassment Policy for additional information. The procedures for handling complaints are available on the Title IX website

HMS Title IX Coordinators


Information about the Harvard Medical School Title IX Coordinators can be found on the HR Sexual Harassment and Other Sexual Misconduct webpage.  Title IX Coordinators serve in a neutral role and support all members of the Harvard community. Coordinators have specialized experience in responding to disclosures of sexual and gender-based harassment in the Harvard community. They are also aware that your concerns may be of a sensitive nature and can offer supports to help you continue with your work or studies while maintaining appropriate discretion.

Contacting your Title IX Coordinator is not the same as filing a formal complaint with the Office for Dispute Resolution. When you reach out to a Title IX Coordinator, you are free to share as much or as little information as you feel comfortable.
