The Inspector General undertakes or supervises official investigations that are not specifically delegated to other agencies or as assigned by the superintendent, reporting findings as directed, consistent with legal requirements.
Additionally, the IG serves as the Title IX coordinator. As Title IX Coordinator, the IG coordinates the development and review of policies, procedures, and training programs for cadets and employees of VMI that support the Superintendent’s Statement on Equity. The IG office receives reports of alleged violations of Title IX of the Education Amendment of 1972, Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The reports are resolved or investigated, with the IG recommending corrective actions to the appropriate authorities.
