Contact JHU’s Title IX Coordinator

All complaints against students, staff and faculty may be filed through JHU’s Assistant Vice Provost/Title IX Coordinator. Students are encouraged to contact or meet with the Coordinator in person. JHU’s Assistant Vice Provost/Title IX Coordinator, Linda Boyd, JD is reachable at: (410) 516-8075. Ms. Boyd's office is located on the Homewood campus in Baltimore: 3400 North Charles Street, Wyman Park Building, Suite 515. For more information about the Office of Institutional Equity, please visit

Questions regarding the University Policy and Procedures and any questions concerning Title IX should also be referred to the University’s Assistant Vice Provost/Title IX Coordinator, Linda Boyd, JD.

The University‘s disciplinary process may also be initiated by bringing a complaint of sexual violence to the attention of a Dean, department chair or director, faculty, supervisor, divisional personnel office, administrative officer, coaches, Office of Student Life, resident assistants, teaching assistants, offices of student affairs, and other University officials. Those officials are required to refer complaints to JHU’s Title IX Coordinator for further review.

Certain University employees, like the ones listed above, have an obligation to respond to reports of sexual violence, even if the individual making the report requests that no action be taken. An individual’s request regarding the confidentiality of reports of sexual assault or harassment will be considered in determining an appropriate response; however, such requests will be considered in the dual contexts of the University’s legal obligation to ensure a working and learning environment free from sexual assault and harassment and the due process rights of the accused to be informed of the allegations and their source. Some level of disclosure may be necessary to ensure a complete and fair investigation, although the University will comply with requests for confidentiality to the extent possible.
