Title IX is a federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of gender/sex at educational institutions that receive federal funding (20 U.S.C. 1681). Title IX was strengthened by the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act (VAWA) in 2013. State laws and UH policy reinforce and add to UH Hilo’s obligations. Read the policy in full.
Prohibited conduct includes sex or gender-based discrimination, including discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity & expression, and nonconformity with sex stereotypes; sexual violence, including sexual assault; sexual harassment, dating and domestic violence, and stalking.
Cases reported to the Title IX Coordinator or any other responsible employee may be investigated. Investigations will be conducted promptly, thoroughly, and impartially by a trained investigator. Additionally, the University will take measures to ensure that the harassment/discrimination ceases, is not repeated, and that its effects are remedied. If you have questions about the investigation process, please contact the Title IX Coordinator.
Title IX Coordinator
The Title IX Deputy Coordinator is Jenna Waipa , who is also located in the Title IX/Office of Equal Opportunity.
You can contact the Title IX Coordinator and Deputy Title IX Coordinator to report an issue, discuss your options, and obtain institutional support. If you would prefer to speak with someone confidentially, you may contact Counseling Services, or Medical Services.
