Georgia Tech Announces New Title IX Coordinator
After a national search, Christina “Chris” Griffin was selected as the new Title IX coordinator at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Griffin began her new role on June 1, reporting to J. Burns Newsome, executive director of Institute Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’s Equity and Compliance Programs.
“Chris brings a wealth of experience in Title IX matters, which will be of great assistance across the Institute's compliance obligations,” Newsome said. “We are extremely happy to have her on board.”
As Title IX coordinator, Griffin is the designated Institute official with primary responsibility for coordinating compliance with Title IX. This includes providing leadership for Title IX activities; consultation, education, and training; and helping to ensure the Institute responds appropriately, effectively, and equitably to Title IX issues. A major area of her responsibility will be the prevention of sexual harassment and discrimination.
Griffin is also responsible for overseeing investigations and resolutions of Title IX claims. She serves as an independent resource for parties to the Title IX investigative process.
Griffin holds a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Virginia. She is a trained mediator registered with the Georgia Office of Dispute Resolution and is certified to mediate cases involving domestic violence.
Prior to joining Tech, Griffin held positions at Kennesaw State University, where she most recently served as senior Equal Employment Opportunity and Title IX investigator within the Office of Institutional Equity. She has also worked as a government and private practice attorney in Virginia and Georgia and is a certified civil rights investigator, mediator, and conflict resolution professional.
