Title IX Office UpdateDec. 7, 2017
There have been several significant developments involving Baylor's Title IX Office during the Fall 2017 semester, most notably the external verification of the completion of the 105 recommendations in response to past incidents of sexual violence within the campus community and the recent lifting of an accreditation warning sanction by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
Another recent update to the Title IX Office involves staff, as Coordinator Kristan Tucker has resigned from her position effective January 2, 2018. During her time at Baylor, Ms. Tucker worked with a team of professionals and attorneys to implement many changes to Baylor's Title IX processes and policies on behalf of students. The University is grateful for her technical expertise, her support of ongoing strategic initiatives and overall service to Baylor and other campus partners.
This transition will not impact the ongoing operations of the Title IX Office, nor Baylor's commitment to the safety and security of the campus community or compliance with applicable laws and guidelines. Maureen Holland, a consulting member of the international legal firm Cozen O'Connor, is serving as the University's Interim Title IX Coordinator until a replacement is announced.
