Title IX

Letter Regarding Updates to Title IX Regulations

May 13, 2020

To the UMB Community:

The U.S. Department of Education recently announced final amended regulations regarding Title IX, the federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance.

The new regulations are complex and require thoughtful examination and evaluation as the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) identifies the policy and operational responses needed to respond and remain compliant with the law. UMB is committed to continuing to provide a supportive University community and an environment that is free from sex- and gender-based discrimination.

We recognize that the new regulations may raise questions or concerns, so we invite the UMB community to contact our Title IX staff via email or by calling 410-706-2281.

UMB's Office of Accountability and Compliance is operating during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our Title IX staff remains committed to providing information, resources, and assistance to our community.

If you have experienced, witnessed, or suspect someone has violated Title IX, please do one of the following:

  • Report it via the UMB hotline.
  • Report it by calling 866-594-5220.
  • Contact Title IX coordinator Mary MacFadden at 410-706-4938.

The hotline allows for anonymity, but it is not an emergency service, so please call 911 if you need emergency assistance. Retaliation for filing a report will not be tolerated.

Current Title IX policies and procedures are available for your review.
