Title IX & Bias Harassment Coordinator

Title IX & Bias Harassment Coordinator

Macalester College invites applications and nominations for a Title IX & Bias Harassment Coordinator. As a senior leader reporting to the President, the Coordinator will ensure that the college is at the forefront of creating an environment free from sexual discrimination and bias harassment for all community members. The Coordinator will provide leadership for and work with administrators, faculty, students, and staff on responsibilities related to sexual violence, harassment, and discrimination.

Since its founding in 1874, Macalester has provided students with the inspiration, insight, and experience to become successful and ethical leaders. The liberal arts educational experience at Macalester supports the development of individuals who make informed judgments and interpretations of the broader world around them and choose actions or beliefs for which they are willing to be held accountable. Preparing students for engaged citizenship and effective civic leadership is a critical part of Macalester’s mission. Located in St. Paul, Minnesota, Macalester currently enrolls 2,174 students who come from 50 U.S. states, D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico.

The Coordinator will need to be empathetic, fair and professional; with the ability to offer guidance and resources. The coordinator should focus particularly in ensuring the process for formal complaints is understood and that the education of the community is a priority at all times. In particular, a focus on making policies more readable and relatable is key. The Coordinator will also need to speak to the importance of the Title IX work and look to build relationships to ensure Macalester is a leader on the issue. Successful candidates will have significant experience with Title IX or other highly-related initiatives in a comparably complex environment. The Coordinator will have strong counseling and trauma-response skills, as well as an exceptional ability to build trust with students and other constituencies. An advanced degree is preferred and a Bachelor's degree is required.

Please send all nominations, inquiries, and expressions of interest, in confidence to:
