What is Title IX?

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects individuals from sex discrimination in educational programs and activities at institutions that receive federal financial assistance.

Clark University is committed to providing an environment free from discrimination on the basis of sex. We provide many resources to students, faculty and staff to address concerns relating to discrimination on this basis, which includes sexual misconduct and assault.

David Everitt, Senior Associate Director of Human Resources and Affirmative Action, serves as the University’s Interim Title IX Coordinator, and oversees and provides leadership for the activities of the Title IX deputies, compliance related responsibilities and Title IX training. 


Title IX Responsibilities

Clark University has appointed Title IX deputies to assist in developing an efficient and effective University response to each complaint and where appropriate, assist with investigations of particular situations.

The Title IX associates are:

  • Sheree Marlowe, Chief Officer of Diversity and Inclusion, Title IX Coordinator
  • Trish Cronin, Athletics Director, Deputy IX Coordinator for Students
  • Adam Keyes, Assistant Dean of Students, Deputy IX Coordinator for Students

When Should You Contact the Title IX Coordinators or Deputies?

Any student, faculty or staff member, or applicant for admission who has concerns about sex discrimination or sexual misconduct is encouraged to seek the assistance of the Title IX Coordinator or a deputy. Contact the coordinator or deputy if you:

  • Wish to understand your options if you think you may have encountered sex discrimination or sexual misconduct
  • Learn of a situation that you believe may warrant a University investigation
  • Have questions about Clark’s policies and procedures
