On Thursday, November 3, 2022, University leaders, along with partners from across campus, joined the UNC’s Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office (EOC) to celebrate 50 years of protections provided under Title IX federal law. Title IX prohibits discrimination and harassment based on gender. Sexual assault and sexual violence are forms of sexual or gender-based harassment that are prohibited by Title IX.

Distinguished speakers at the reception included Becci Menghini, Vice Chancellor for Human Resources and Equal Opportunity and Compliance, and Christi Hurt, Chief of Staff to Chancellor Kevin M. Guskiewicz. Guests received a short history on Title IX’s evolution at UNC from Hurt. She served as Interim Title IX Coordinator in 2013 and played an integral role in establishing the University’s Policy on Prohibited Discrimination, Harassment, and Related Misconduct.

Elizabeth Hall, Associate Vice Chancellor for Equal Opportunity and Compliance and the University’s Title IX Coordinator, highlighted recent structural changes to EOC, attributing much of the office’s recent growth to the collaboration by many campus partners in attendance. “Without your support, guidance and resources, we wouldn’t be celebrating here today. EOC is committed to working closely with you for many years to come. We will always be dedicated to the well-being and success of the Carolina community,” Hall said.

The presentation was hosted by Tiffany Bailey, Carolina’s Director of Equal Opportunity & ADA Coordinator.
