VP, Office of Civil Rights & Title IX Coordinator

Position Summary

Michigan State University (MSU) seeks an experienced, highly collaborative, and strategic leader to fill the role of Vice President for Civil Rights and Title IX Coordinator (VP). This is a newly elevated (to Vice President) and imagined position that is central to the strategic goals of the university to create a safe and welcoming campus environment for all. As leader of the Office for Civil Rights and Title IX Education and Compliance, the VP is responsible for leading MSU’s civil rights and Title IX compliance and efforts to cultivate a campus community that is free of discrimination and harassment. This includes oversight of the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE); the Prevention, Outreach and Education Office (POE); the Resolution Office; the Office of Support and Equity; the Equity Review Officer (appeals), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)/Section 504 Coordinator. The VP and their team coordinate with internal and external entities that provide crisis and advocacy services to survivors of sexual assault and relationship violence, as well as those impacted by discrimination and harassment and potential retaliation based on several protected categories.

The VP reports directly to the President of the University and leads the development and implementation of a comprehensive and robust approach to broad-ranging civil rights and Title IX issues with a trauma-informed approach. The ideal individual will have in-depth experience working in civil rights compliance in higher education with a strong track record of collaboration and forging relationships across an organization. The newly appointed VP should have demonstrated experience with campus engagement, a transparent communication style, strong supervisory experience, and a track record of impactful leadership while driving Title IX and civil rights compliance initiatives in a large, fast-moving, complex academic and regulatory environment. In addition, the VP should be open to engaging with the media as well as internal and external stakeholders around a variety of complex issues. This is a pivotal moment in MSU’s history, and the VP will have the unparalleled opportunity for impact not only on campus, but within the region, and among Big Ten peers and beyond. The VP will be required to have a relevant advanced degree and demonstrated knowledge of state and federal laws and regulations pertaining to civil rights, Title IX, complaint resolution, and grievance procedures with a strong focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Vice President provides direct supervision to 9 staff members and approximately 40 additional staff housed within areas in the VP’s purview: the Office for Civil Rights and Title IX Education and Compliance (OCR); the Resolution Office; the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE); the Equity Review Officer; and the Prevention, Outreach, and Education Department (POE); as well as the Office of the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator. Due to the broad areas of oversight, the VP must have an understanding of intersectionality, identity, and a trauma-informed approach to decision-making. As the area continually strives for excellence and pushes to stay ahead of best practices in the field, the VP will serve as a strategic leader in ensuring that the policies, systems, processes, and resources of the Office are adapted to the campus’ evolving needs. The VP will be the face of the Office and a strong spokesperson and advocate for their team both internally and externally. They will have strong communications support to enable proactive initiatives as well as to respond to issues as they arise. The VP should be data-driven with the ability to work with their team to collect and analyze information and then implement findings according to best practices. This will inform the strategic visioning of the area’s processes and policies to lead the institution in civil rights work.

The VP will bring a strong commitment to relationship building and collaboration as their areas of oversight are bridges to nearly every other office and department on campus. They interface with faculty, staff, and students and external community members and will develop a knowledge of the greater campus community to be effective in their work. There is a culture of collaboration and collegiality in the Michigan State community, and the Vice President will need to demonstrate transparent communication and an excitement around this collaboration to be successful in the role.
