Title IX Teams

The University of Wisconsin La Crosse carries out the objectives of Title IX through a coordinated system of initiatives, programs, and services that collectively protect educational access, advance gender equity, and prevent and respond to sexual harassment, sexual violence, and gender discrimination.  In order to live out this objective and ensure compliance with Federal, State, Board of Regent, and University policies, the Office of Title IX and Compliance has identified and created three groups to assist:  Title IX Advisory Team, Title IX Compliance Team, and Title IX Investigative Team.  Each team and the members that make up the team are described below.
