Title IX Coordinators & Liaisons
UT Southwestern’s Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Coordinators play an integral role in carrying out UT Southwestern’s commitment to providing a positive learning, teaching, and working environment that is free from sex discrimination. These professionals have received specialized training and are knowledgeable about sex discrimination including sexual misconduct, harassment, and violence
Any employees, individuals holding a faculty appointment, students, trainees, or applicants with concerns about sex discrimination are encouraged to seek the assistance of the Title IX Coordinator or a Deputy Title IX Coordinator when:
- You wish to understand your options if you think you may have encountered sex discrimination such as sexual misconduct, harassment, or violence.
- You learn of a situation involving potential sex discrimination that you feel may warrant a University investigation.
- You need help on how to handle a situation that indirectly affects you.
- You need guidance on possible informal remedies or administrative measures to de-escalate or alleviate a difficult situation.
- You have questions about UTSW’s policies and procedures related to sex discrimination.
- You believe you have been retaliated against for bringing a complaint of sex discrimination or for participating in an investigation.
All UT Southwestern employees MUST report all information known about incidents of sexual assault, sexual harassment, dating violence, and stalking committed by or against a UTSW student or employee to a Title IX Coordinator. Confidential Employees must report only the type of incident to a Title IX Coordinator. Knowingly failing to report an incident as required could lead to termination of employment and possible criminal charges under state law. If you have questions about your reporting obligations, please contact a Title IX Coordinator.

Deputy Title IX Coordinators also have been authorized to address issues of sex-based discrimination and to receive and resolve complaints. The Deputy Coordinators report to Dr. Charles Ginsburg on Title IX-related issues.
Title IX Liaisons for Student Concerns
The Title IX Liaison provides a neutral and impartial environment for students to voice concerns related to Title IX or Sexual Misconduct at UT Southwestern, and to provide information and assistance to students who have Title IX-related questions or complaints. The Liaison functions in an independent and informal manner to help students discover pathways and options for effective problem solving and conflict resolution. The Liaison provides a safe place for students to have conversations on issues related to their work or learning environment. The Liaison helps individuals identify options for fair and equitable outcomes and fosters civility and mutual respect as outlined in the relevant University policy and/or Code of Conduct.
The Liaison supplements, but does not replace, any existing grievance mechanisms or modes of redress. The Liaison is a mandatory reporter under SB 212 and must report all concerns of sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence or stalking to the Title IX Coordinator.
