Title IX Coordinator and Deputies


Title IX refers to Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, and it prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender by institutions receiving federal money.  Generally, the Title IX Coordinator is responsible for the development, implementation, and monitoring of meaningful efforts to comply with Title IX law. This includes overseeing the Title IX complaint process as well as identifying and addressing any patterns or systemic problems that arise.

Reporting to Law Enforcement

Individuals always have the option to notify law enforcement. Augsburg University will assist in contacting the Minneapolis Police or other agency if requested. Filing a police report is not required in order for Augsburg University to pursue a report on campus.    The criminal process is separate from action that occurs through the University. An individual may report an incident with Augsburg and not with law enforcement and vice versa.
