Kansas State University is an equal opportunity employer and actively seeks diversity among its employees.
The OAA staff consists of a Director/Title IX Coordinator, Investigator/Deputy Title IX Coordinator, an Assistant Director, and an Administrative Officer. The director and the assistant director serve as liaisons between the OAA and certain academic and administrative units. However, in the absence of a unit's liaison, one of the other two staff will be available. Each one can provide guidance, interpret policies and procedures, meet with search committees, collaborate with you in resolving complaints, and many other things. The Investigator conducts investigations of possible violations of the University's anti-discrimination policy, develops relevant training materials, and delivers training to the campus community.
