Biography:

Chantelle Cleary serves as the University at Albany's Title IX coordinator. In this capacity, she is responsible for ensuring the proper application of the federal Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 at the University.

The law recognizes that sexual violence, which includes sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking and sexual harassment, is a form of sex discrimination. Thus, colleges must promptly respond to known instances of sexual violence in a way that limits its effects and prevents its recurrence. As the Title IX Coordinator, Cleary leads the University at Albany’s sexual violence prevention and education initiatives as well as the institutional response to sexual violence.

In recognition of her expertise in the field of sexual violence investigations, Cleary was recently selected as an educational instructor for The National Center for Campus Public Safety’s (NCCPS) Trauma-Informed Sexual Assault Investigation and Adjudication Educational Program.

The NCCPS has worked with nationally recognized subject matter experts in the fields of sexual and gender-based violence investigations, Title IX, the Clery Act, victim's advocacy, student conduct, and psychology to develop a leading-edge curriculum which will be delivered to the higher education community. Through her role as instructor, Cleary will be responsible for providing trauma-informed curriculum to campus officials at institutions of higher education.

Cleary joined UAlbany in 2015. She is an attorney with experience in the District Attorney’s Offices of Albany and Clinton counties. During her decade long tenure as an Assistant District Attorney, she specialized in the prosecution of sexual assaults, intimate partner violence, and crimes against children.
