Paula Varnes Fussell, Vice President for Human Resource Services

The University of Florida has zero tolerance for discrimination or harassment, sexual harassment, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence or stalking.  In addition, federal laws, specifically Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) and 34 C.F.R. Part 106, prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender in education programs or activities.   Sexual harassment of students, staff and faculty–which includes acts of sexual violence–is a form of sex discrimination prohibited by Title IX.

The Office of the Vice President for Human Resource Services has been assigned the responsibility for coordinating Title IX compliance as it relates to harassment.  To assist with this compliance, I am pleased to announce that Elnora Mitchell has been appointed as the University Title IX Coordinator.  In addition, five Deputy Title IX Coordinators have been appointed to assist with activities in support of Title IX.  Contact information for Elnora and her team is provided below.

The Title IX coordinators, along with colleagues from the campus community, have developed an awareness campaign to highlight the university’s commitment to an environment free of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. This campaign will include the distribution of posters in key locations throughout the campus to encourage awareness, prevention and reporting.  Additional information, including samples of the posters may be found via the following: www.hr.ufl.edu/prevent.

Please contact Elnora Mitchell if you have any questions.
