Christine Harris Taylor, J.D., LL.M., Title IX coordinator, is resigning from Marquette University to serve as the Director of the Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance at Wichita State University.
During her 15 years Marquette, Taylor has built up the Title IX program and has worked closely with stakeholders on and off campus. She was instrumental in developing Marquette’s Title IX policy and creating a legal framework to respond to individual incidents across our campus. She also led efforts to revise education and training for students and employees.
“We are in a far better place than we were when Christine took over the administration of Title IX work at Marquette,” said Dr. William Welburn, executive director of diversity and inclusion.
Cara Brook Hardin, who was previously serving as Deputy Title IX coordinator and worked closely with Taylor, has been named the interim Title IX coordinator during the transition. Hardin has a wealth of legal experience, and will ensure that students seeking support will be served with the greatest level of care.
