Title IX Resources Team*

UMBC strives to provide a safe and welcoming campus environment that facilitates educational, professional and social growth for its students, faculty, and staff In honoring this commitment, the University has created a Title IX Resources Team. The Title IX Resources Team consists of a network of trained and diverse campus volunteers, who work collaboratively to provide information to individuals who have been subjected to conduct that is prohibited under the University’s Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy (“Policy”).

Speaking to a Title IX Resources Team member does not mean that an individual is required to file a complaint or access any additional resources. But it is an opportunity to learn about options, supports, and resources from a non-judgmental member, who will maintain an individual’s privacy to the fullest extent possible*. Further, there is no requirement to provide the Title IX Resources Team member with any identifying information, if an individual is not comfortable doing so. If you or someone you know has been subjected to conduct, prohibited by the Policy, including Sexual Assault, Relationship Violence, Domestic Violence, Sexual or Gender Based Harassment, Sexual Exploitation, Sexual Intimidation, or Stalking, you can contact one of the Title IX Resources Team members identified below. In case of an emergency call 911 or University Police at 410-455-5555.
