Who are Lewis & Clark’s Title IX Coordinators, and what do they do?
The Title IX Coordinator has responsibility for overseeing all Title IX compliance, including complaints of sexual misconduct. All instances of Sexual Misconduct should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Coordinator.
The Title IX Coordinator for Lewis & Clark is:

A Title IX Coordinator will review the Sexual Misconduct Reporting Options available.
What should I do if I think I have been discriminated against on the basis of my gender, or subjected to sexual misconduct?
You should bring your situation to the attention of the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Coordinator. There are also a number of other resources set forth in the College’s Sexual Misconduct Policy.
Harassment and other conduct motivated by bias or hate may also be covered in the College’s Harassment and Hate- or Bias-Motivated Conduct Policy.
