  • Admissions

The Title IX Coordinator monitors DSU policy in relation to Title IX law developments. They also implement grievance procedures, including notification, investigation, and disposition of complaints. They provide educational materials and training for the campus community and conduct and/or coordinate investigations of complaints received pursuant to Title IX.
