The University of Connecticut Wednesday released job announcements for two newly created jobs to investigate allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

These positions follow the filing of a complaint and lawsuit against the university by a group of students who say UConn mishandled their accusations of sexual assault last fall.

“The newly formed position of Lead Title IX Investigator/Deputy Title IX Coordinator will play a significant role in the University’s coordinated response, prevention and education initiatives,” one of the job announcements reads.
