Taylor to serve as interim Title IX coordinator

Christine Taylor, executive director for Wichita State University’s Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance, will serve as the interim Title IX coordinator beginning Aug. 9. Christine will succeed Sara Zafar, who is returning to private practice.

Institutions receiving federal funding are required to designate a coordinator who is responsible for ensuring Title IX compliance. This includes overseeing all sex discrimination complaints and coordinating the university’s response to reports of sex discrimination complaints.

Before joining Wichita State University, Taylor served as the Marquette University Title IX coordinator from 2015 to 2018.  She has also served as the Interim Title IX coordinator for WSU before Sara Zafar’s appointment. Taylor’s experience as a Title IX coordinator will continue the University’s commitment to providing support, response and resolution of reports of sexual harassment, discrimination and retaliation.

Resources and reporting options are available on the OIEC website. For more information, or report directly, email Christine.taylor@wichita.edu or call 316-978-3205.
