The task force, led by the director of the Carolina Women’s Center and former interim Title IX coordinator Christi Hurt, has meet regularly to improve the way the University responds to student-on-student reports of discrimination, harassment (including sexual misconduct), stalking and interpersonal violence.

The task force is building on the work done by a previous committee that revised the University policy in 2012 in response to new guidelines issued by the federal Department of Education. The task force is broadly based, including students, faculty, staff members specializing in this area and a community representative.

Chair Christi Hurt will post regular updates about the task force and its work on this site.
