Pursuant to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 and other applicable law and policy, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill prohibits discrimination or harassment based on sex. Specifically, no person shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity of the University. Sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX includes sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual violence and sexual misconduct. Title IX also prohibits retaliation against any individual who, in good faith, asserts his or her rights under Title IX.
Any student who experiences sexual harassment (including sexual misconduct, sexual assault or sexual violence), harassment or discrimination on the basis of sex is encouraged to contact the University’s Student Complaint Coordinator/Deputy Title IX Officer, Ew Quimbaya-Winship. His office is located in Suite 1125 of the Student and Academic Services Buildings (SASB North) and he may be reached at (919) 843-3878. Ew works with complainants to discuss the complaint process, coordinate protective measures, if necessary, and provide information about other available resources. He is also available to provide resources and discuss available options with students accused of sexual assault.
Students are also encouraged to contact the police to report alleged sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, sexual violence, sexual assault or any other criminal behavior.
Any administrator or supervisor, including a department chair, associate dean or other administrator, who receives notice of a student’s complaint of alleged prohibited harassment, including sexual misconduct, or discrimination must contact the Equal Opportunity/ADA Office within five (5) calendar days of receiving the complaint.
