Title IX Resources for LGBTQIA+ Students


All lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual students should know that they are protected by Rowan University's Title IX policies.  In addition, New Jersey's Law Against Discrimination makes it unlawful to subject people to differential treatment based upon their sex, sexual orientation or gender identity.  If you are a transgender student, regardless of the federal government's current position on transgender individuals, Rowan University policies and the laws of the state of New Jersey protect you.  

Reporting Sexual Misconduct: If you are an LBGTQ student and you experience sexual assault, sexual violence, intimate partner violence or harassment, please report it to the Interim Title IX Coordinator, Frankie Lucas or to the Deputy Title IX LGBTQ Coordinators, Travis Douglas, Asst. Vice President for Residential Learning and Inclusion and Penny Kempf, Associate Director of Athletics. You will be heard and treated with respect.

Likewise, if you report a crime to Rowan Public Safety, a public safety officer will respectfully assist you.  If you would like to speak directly with the LGBTQIA police liaison, Sgt. Rachel Baum, they should either call 856-256-4911 and ask to speak with Sgt. Baum or email her.  

LGBTQ students who would like to speak with a confidential resource should know that every counselor at the Wellness Center is committed to supporting students of all gender identities, gender expressions, and sexual orientation.
