College Title IX Resource Coordinators

The Harvard College Title IX Resource Coordinators for students play an integral role in ensuring that all students have access to the myriad resources and opportunities that Harvard College has to offer, both in and outside the classroom, recognizing that this access is critical to facilitating the intellectual, social, and personal transformations that a liberal arts and sciences education has to offer.

Harvard University Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging (ODIB)

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Harvard University views diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging as the pathway to achieving inclusive excellence and fostering a campus culture where everyone can thrive. Our community is made of students, staff, faculty, and postdoctoral researchers who draw from a dynamic range of backgrounds to contribute to the pursuit of our common goals. The work and well-being of ODIB are strengthened by the diversity of our network and our differences in background, culture, experience, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, gender expression, race, ethnicity, age, ability, political views, veteran status, and more. We actively seek and welcome people of color, women, persons with disabilities, people who identify as LGBTQIA, and those who are at the intersections of these identities, from across the spectrum of disciplines and methods to join us. Together, we strive to create an environment that values diversity, promotes an inclusive culture, and establishes a profound sense of belonging for each member of our community.

Through our work, we foster the inclusion, affirmation, and celebration of all BGLTQ identities and expressions. We strive to create a community where BGLTQ students can thrive and where all students are well-equipped to engage knowledgeably and compassionately with regard to gender and sexuality.
