Compliance and Title IX

The Office of Compliance and Title IX works closely with all seven Community College Campuses, the University of Hawai'i System, Community Partners and Agencies, and other stakeholders to further the University of Hawai'i’s commitment to maintain and promote safe and respectful campus environments that are free from discrimination, gender-based violence, and misconduct in violation of University policies.

The Office provides a full range of services that support the community college system to foster equal access to education/programs/services, promote the University’s values, as well ensure compliance with applicable federal and state laws and University policies. In collaboration with the University System Office for Institutional Equity, the Office also coordinates initiatives for preventing, reporting and responding to discrimination, including sexual and gender based harassment, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Services include investigation support for campuses, the coordination and facilitation of various training programs, technical assistance for administrators regarding civil rights and policy issues, and the coordination of partnerships with community agencies to provide needed services to students such as confidential advocate resources to assist with incidents of sexual assault and intimate partner violence.

Working collaboratively with a wide range of offices and individuals, including the Office of Institutional Equity, Campus Title IX Coordinators, Human Resources, Equal Employment Opportunity Directors, and campus and system leadership, the Office promotes a coordinated approach to education regarding civil rights compliance, a uniform process of addressing complaints of misconduct, as well as a systemwide multi-level approach to changing the campus climate regarding discrimination and gender-based violence.
