Full-Time Title IX and Civil Rights Investigator
What a full day it’s been, what an impact I’ve made!
Mentally shifting from sensitive conversations, to querying for facts, to providing resources, to advising about policy compliance, all at a moment’s notice can be exhausting. For this vital role though, it’s a requirement to truly be successful. Establishing relationships, taking thorough notes, revering confidentiality as a must & knowing when to guide versus investigate are key components for the person we are seeking. This fresh team is looking to become a resource to the university where everyone reaches out for guidance & assistance in matters on sensitive subjects. If you enjoy helping others in a time of uncertainty or struggle, competent in report writing & willing to ask the hard questions to get to the bottom of things, we potentially want you for this position. Apply so we can start the examination of why you would be best for the role.
