Job Description


"No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance."

Legal Citation: Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and its implementing regulation at 34 C.F.R. Part 106 (Title IX)


Each university receiving Federal financial assistance must designate at least one professional employee as the Title IX Coordinator to oversee compliance efforts and investigate any complaint of sex discrimination.


The Title IX Coordinator is responsible for monitoring the overall implementation of Title IX for the university and coordinating compliance with Title IX in all areas covered by the implementing regulations. Major duties include, but are not limited to, monitoring the following areas.


  • Admissions and Recruitment

  • Educational Programs and Activities

    • Housing

    • Comparable facilities

    • Access to course offerings

    • Participation in extra-curricular activities

    • Financial assistance

    • Student employment assistance

    • Health services and student insurance

    • Marital or parental status

    • Athletics & physical education


Adoption of procedures to provide prompt and equitable resolution of complaints is a critical function of the Title IX Coordinator. The Coordinator can assist persons alleging sexual harassment or discrimination in filing their grievance(s) and/or oversee the step-by-step procedure to be sure that appropriate time frames are met, or such persons may work directly with the university officer who directly handles sexual harassment and discrimination cases (Dean of Students or Director of Human Resources).


In carrying out this responsibility, the Coordinator may work in concert with other university officials, including the Dean of Students and the Director of Human Resources. If the Title IX Coordinator does not conduct the investigation of complaints, the Coordinator should receive information about any grievances filed related to Title IX compliance. This procedure allows the institution to identify any patterns or repeat offenders that may be missed otherwise. The Coordinator should also receive sufficient information throughout the process so that the Coordinator can provide necessary guidance or information to ensure that the institution carries out its responsibilities under Title IX.


The Title IX Coordinator at The University of Texas at Dallas is Marco Mendoza.
