Drexel University Title IX Resource Page – Sex Discrimination, Harassment, and Sexual Assault

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (“Title IX”) prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity.  Sexual harassment, which includes sexual violence, is a form of sex discrimination. 

Drexel University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination, including discrimination based upon sex.  The University provides supports and resources to students, faculty, and professional staff to address concerns related to sex discrimination and has appointed Michele Rovinsky-Mayer, Associate Vice President, Office of Equality and Diversity, as its Title IX Coordinator.  Retaliation against an individual who has filed a complaint under Title IX is prohibited and the University will take strong action if it occurs.  As Title IX Coordinator, Ms. Rovinsky-Mayer has the following responsibilities:

  • Responsibility for overall Title IX compliance
  • Oversight of Deputy Title IX Coordinators
  • Assisting the complainant in identifying the appropriate University policy to resolve the complaint in a prompt and equitable manner
  • Central source for all sexual harassment/misconduct allegations on campus
  • Responsibility for climate checks/tracking/monitoring sexual harassment/misconduct allegations on campus
  • Coordination of education and prevention efforts
