As The University of Toledo continues to strengthen its efforts to fight sexual assault and unlawful harassment, it announced today the appointment of a campus administrator who will lead the prevention, education and response efforts regarding Title IX matters at UT.

Donald Kamm, associate director and Title IX deputy coordinator at the University of Illinois at Chicago Office for Access and Equity, will join The University of Toledo as director of Title IX and compliance and Title IX coordinator May 2.

“Donald brings a wealth of relevant experience to the role,” said David Cutri, UT director of the Office of Internal Audit and chief compliance officer.

“He is a legal professional and university administrator with more than 15 years of experience in partnering with senior executives, administrators, faculty, staff and students in areas of Title IX, Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Clery Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and the Americans With Disabilities Act.

Cutri said Kamm is well-versed in related areas of state and local law and with state and federal agencies, including the Department of Education and its Office of Civil Rights, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

“Donald will be a terrific ambassador for the University, and will propel the University to a leadership role in ensuring an inclusive, diverse and safe learning environment,” Cutri said.

At UT, Kamm will lead a recently restructured Title IX office. Three deputy coordinators each responsible for students, faculty and staff Title IX issues will report to Kamm, who also will work closely with the Division of Student Affairs, the UT Police Department and other divisions across the University.

“I am looking forward to my return to The University of Toledo,” said Kamm, who earned his juris doctorate from UT’s College of Law. “Colleges and universities across the nation are facing Title IX challenges, and I am excited to partner with UT students, faculty, staff and the community to help the University become a national leader in Title IX.”
