DIRECTOR OF TITLE IX SERVICES
Position Type: Collaborative/Shared
Reports to: ICI Vice President and General Counsel
The Director of Title IX Services is employed by Independent Colleges of Indiana to perform relevant work for campuses that choose to participate in associated shared services program(s). In this newly created position, the coordinator will initially collaborate with ICI Vice President and General Counsel to develop and launch ICI’s first Title IX member service program. The shared employee will provide services that benefit the participant group in aggregate and will, where needed, also provide campus-specific services. It is anticipated that in the future the Director of Title IX Services may work toward the development of additional equity-related program offerings. At its outset, however, this position will focus exclusively on the provision of Title IX-related services to ICI member schools.
DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES
- Assist with development and implementation of ICI’s shared Title IX services program.
- Monitor legislation, litigation, and regulatory changes in Title IX and related areas and provide timely updates to members.
- Audit members’ Title IX policies and procedures on a regular basis and provide related guidance.
- Develop and deliver Title IX training programs to campus personnel, trustee boards, and other groups.
- Respond to requests for assistance from campus Coordinators related to pending or potential Title IX cases and other related issues.
- Provide Title IX resolution services to member campuses, including potential roles as hearing officer, advisor, mediator, or (in rare instances) investigator.
- Track and report time spent on providing services to program participants and to the group in aggregate.
- Oversee Title IX affinity group meetings and facilitate idea sharing to create a culture of best practice among ICI members.
- Organize additional training opportunities with external trainers for the benefit of campus Title IX personnel.
- Present regular updates on program progress to ICI Board or other stakeholders.
- Maintain up-to-date training and engage in regular professional development to continuously hone relevant skill set.
- Perform other duties and projects as assigned.
MEASURES OF ACCOMPLISHMENT
- Will be determined when annual goals and objectives are defined. Regular, consistent, and accurate tracking of time spent on member services will be required.
NECESSARY SKILLS AND ABILITIES
- Knowledge of current and proposed laws, regulations, and rules including Title IX, Clery Act, Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), Campus SaVE Act, and athletics-specific compliance rules.
- Effective written and oral communication skills and the ability to adapt those skills to a variety of audiences.
- Excellent organizational and analytical abilities.
- Authoritative presence that exudes calm expertise during difficult situations.
- Sincere concern for advancement of equity and deep regard for all campus personnel and students.

- Ability to manage one’s own schedule, adhere to deadlines, and establish priorities to ensure appropriate attention is given to the needs of each participating campus.
- Careful adherence to expectations of privacy and confidentiality both within and between member campuses.
REQUIRED EDUCATION & TRAINING
- Bachelor’s degree or higher; degrees from ICI members may be preferred.
- Three years of Title IX experience within an educational setting (preference given to those with experience in higher education, rather than K-12 settings). An ideal candidate will have experience conducting Title IX intakes, investigations or hearings, compliance reviews, sexual violence prevention, informal resolution, and/or training of others.
- Current Title IX training (provider information will be requested).
This position offers flexibility for remote work but is not a remote position. The primary work location will be the offices of ICI. In-state travel to participating campuses should be expected on a regular basis. The successful candidate must have own transportation and a clean driving record.
A full-time role at ICI is expected to be 40 hours per week, taking place Monday through Friday. Specific work hours are at the employee’s discretion but availability to ICI members should be considered as a working schedule is developed.
