Note: Act 208, effective July 1, 2016, mandates that faculty members are “responsible employees” for the purposes of Title IX. The template below has been revised to comply with Act 208.

The University of Hawaiʻi is committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility, and mutual respect and is free of all forms of sex discrimination and gender-based violence, including sexual assault, sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

If you or someone you know is experiencing or has experienced any of these, the University has staff and resources on your campus to support and assist you. Staff can also direct you to resources that are in the community.

As a member of the University faculty, I am required to immediately report any incident of sex discrimination or gender-based violence to the campus Title IX Coordinator. Although the Title IX Coordinator and I cannot guarantee confidentiality, you will still have options about how your case will be handled.  My goal is to make sure you are aware of the range of options available to you and have access to the resources and support you need.

If you wish to speak with someone confidentially or would like to receive information and support in a confidential setting, you can contact any of the following on-campus resources:
