Equal opportunity director/Title IX coordinator named

August 5, 2015

Aimee Janssen-Robinson has been named director of equal opportunity and Title IX coordinator at Indiana State University.

A university staff member since 2005, Janssen-Robinson is assistant dean of students for student advocacy. She previously served as associate director for wellness and as wellness educator in the Student Health Promotion/Student Counseling Center. She holds a bachelor's degree in community health education from Southern Illinois University and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Indiana State where she is also completing a Ph.D.

"Aimee has demonstrated her commitment to equal opportunity throughout her employment at ISU, and has lead the effort across campus to address sexual violence for many years," said Katie Butwin, the university's general counsel. "I'm excited to have Aimee serve in this leadership position."

The Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office is responsible for carrying out the university's commitment to preventing discrimination on the basis of sex, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, disability or veteran status, against any of its employees, students or invited guests. This includes Title IX and Campus SaVE Act obligations related to sexual misconduct, including sexual violence and sexual harassment, intimate partner violence, and stalking.

As assistant dean of students, Janssen-Robinson has coordinated the university's sexual violence prevention and response activities, provided victim advocate services and represented the university on the Vigo County Sexual Assault Response Team.

I look forward to serving the university and the ISU community in this new role," Janssen-Robinson said. "I am committed to promoting diversity and inclusion on campus through clear processes and impartial, fair and prompt investigative practices."

Janssen-Robinson will attend the EXCEL Conference, sponsored by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Training Institute, in Washington DC next week in preparation for assuming her new position Aug. 17.

A search for a new assistant dean for student advocacy will begin in the coming weeks, said Willie Banks, vice president for student affairs and dean of students.
