The purpose of this Equity by Design brief is to aid administrators in protecting sexual and gender minority students from discrimination and harassment. Specifically, this Brief presents Title IX’s conceptualizations of sex and harassment to identify who is protected, and from what. Further, it discusses how to navigate backlash administrators might encounter.

Finally, it considers ways administrators can care for themselves since some, particularly administrators of Color, might be afraid for their wellbeing and employment as they do this work.
