Job Description


Five Colleges, Incorporated (FCI) seeks a Civil Rights and Title IX Investigator to help the member institutions of the Five College Consortium realize their commitment to fostering safe and respectful campus climates free of unlawful discrimination, harassment, and sexual and gender-based misconduct.

Working with multiple on- and off-campus stakeholders, the Civil Rights and Title IX Investigator executes prompt, effective, and remedial investigative responses to reports or complaints of discrimination and harassment in accordance with each member institution’s policies and procedures.

This is a full-time, exempt, benefited position with Five Colleges, Incorporated. The primary work location for this in-person role is on the campus of Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts, but requires frequent in-person interaction with individuals on multiple campuses in the consortium.

  • Know the federal and state civil rights laws and regulations (Title IX, Title VII, VAWA, ADA, EEO, Clery Act, and others)
  • Can understand and apply differing sets of campus policies and procedures
  • Write clear and thorough investigative reports
  • Demonstrate impeccable and accurate record-keeping skills
  • Interact with others with respect, care, and sensitivity, especially when navigating difficult matters


Five Colleges, Incorporated and its five associated institutions are committed to supporting and sustaining a diversity of people, backgrounds, experiences, ideas, and points of view for the essential contribution this diversity makes to the missions of our organizations. In support of this commitment, Five Colleges requires all of its employees to work cooperatively and effectively with the diversity of people within the organization itself, at the colleges, and in our partner organizations.
