Baylor University, a private Christian university and a nationally ranked research institution, provides a vibrant campus community for more than 15,000 students by blending interdisciplinary research with an international reputation for educational excellence and a faculty commitment to teaching and scholarship. Baylor University strives to educate men and women for worldwide leadership and service by integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community.

The Title IX Coordinator supports the mission of the University by implementing and overseeing Baylors Title IX compliance efforts and by strengthening a culture that supports a safe and respectful learning, working, and living environment, and actively working to create an environment free of unwelcomed conduct of a sexual nature. The position coordinates and executes, in a timely manner, the Universitys response and investigation of alleged violations of Title IX, including the implementation of formal and informal resolution procedures in accordance with regulatory requirements of the University. The Coordinator meets with complainants to provide information regarding resources and reporting, and resolution options based on the nature of the complaint. The Coordinator oversees Title IX investigations, ensures a prompt and equitable resolution of grievances, and compiles/reviews records regarding complaints of sexual misconduct—including the number, nature, and disposition of complaints filed. More broadly, the Coordinator develops, implements, and manages the Universitys Title IX program, including policies, procedures, training programs, and risk assessment plans. The Coordinator shapes training programs that target a variety of campus populations including students, faculty, staff with responsibilities in resolving Title IX complaints, individuals with supervisory responsibilities, and individuals whose day-to-day responsibilities involve working closely with students. It is expected that the Coordinator will carry out a robust communication strategy (in-person, electronic, print, and web-based) regarding resources and educational materials. The Coordinator regularly attends Title IX educational programs to ensure Baylor maintains compliance with current investigative, resolution, and reporting standards, and continuously identifies and integrates best practices as related to Title IX processes. The position reports to the Vice President of Governance and Risk/Chief Compliance Officer.

Minimum qualifications include a masters degree (J.D. preferred), and three years experience with sexual violence prevention/investigation are required. The successful candidate will also demonstrate strong interpersonal skills and the ability to manage sensitive and confidential information/communication; strong presentation and facilitation skills with an emphasis on education and training for a variety of constituencies; effective project management, organizational, and analytical skills; ability to use discretion and good judgment, maintain confidentiality, and work under multiple deadlines; ability to foster positive relationships with diverse constituencies; and an appreciation of the values inherent in a Christian University.
