Title IX Coordinator
Swarthmore College invites applications and nominations for the position of Title IX Coordinator. As one of America's finest undergraduate educational institutions, Swarthmore provides just over 1,500 exceptionally talented students with an education that combines rigorous, engaging intellectual inquiry with a vibrant, caring community. Global in outlook and diversity, Swarthmore draws students from around the world and all 50 states. The College employs approximately 750 people full-time, including 168 tenured and tenure-track faculty, working with an outstanding staff. Located 11 miles southwest of Philadelphia, the College's 425-acre campus is a designated arboretum and the setting for a diverse and creative intellectual community.
The Title IX Coordinator will report to the President of the College and has primary responsibility for: ensuring compliance with the requirements of the College's Title IX efforts, overseeing the quality and consistency of college-wide education, training and outreach related to Title IX, and coordinating the College's response and investigation of complaints related to gender-based inequity, harassment, and violence. In addition to the above responsibilities, Swarthmore's Title IX Coordinator will serve as a central resource for all constituencies on a broad set of issues related to Title IX. This person will play a key role in the College's collective efforts to build and maintain an even safer and more gender-equitable campus climate for all members of the community. Developing and implementing a long-term vision for Swarthmore around Title IX - including but not limited to sexual harassment and sexual violence - will be another key responsibility for the Coordinator.
The ideal candidate will have a master's degree in a relevant discipline or a juris doctorate from an accredited law school. Experience working within higher education is strongly preferred. An understanding of the residential liberal arts college experience and a willingness to work collaboratively within a highly consultative campus culture is required.
