As interim Title IX coordinator, Elizabeth is available to meet with students, staff, and faculty to receive and process complaints of bias, harassment, and discrimination related to any protected classes within our non-discrimination and harassment policy. Engaging the process with Elizabeth is completely confidential. This means that the information she is given during intake is strictly kept within the investigatory process. Though the process is confidential, it is important to note that she may need to take quick corrective action where delay could result in significant harm to the complainant or members of the Brandeis community.
