Diversity and Advocacy (D&A) within the Dean of Students office conducts events, activities and trainings that both celebrate diversity and serve to educate AUC students on pertinent issues of social justice, identity and advocacy, including a comprehensive understanding of Title IX obligations and protections. D&A supports students of varying backgrounds and identities through wide-ranging programming that serves to foster a sense of belonging, and to facilitate multicultural understanding and respect between people of differing backgrounds. Additionally, D&A staff members may serve as advisors supporting students in addressing issues of inclusion and cross-cultural understanding to advocate for a healthy campus climate.
About Title IX:
The Office of Diversity and Advocacy (D&A) receives Title IX related grievances and complaints, and both the D&A Director and Title IX Coordinator act as advisors for Title IX issues and concerns. D&A is responsible for awareness regarding Title IX topics, and provides materials and training to the AUC community. All records, material and information acquired and handled under Title IX grievance procedures are shared only with those who have a legitimate need to know. Disclosure of such information may also be made if it is permitted by law and the University Title IX Coordinator, in consultation with the D&A director, determines that it is in AUC’s best interests to do so.
Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972 prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex/gender in education programs and activities. The objective is to maintain an educational, working and living environment free from discrimination and harassment, including maintaining an environment in which no student, faculty or staff member is excluded from participation in or denied the benefits of its programs and activities as a result of gender.
