Truman State University has hired Lauri Millot to serve as the new Title IX coordinator.
Millot is currently serving as the Executive Director of the Office of Institutional Equity, Title IX Coordinator and section 504 coordinator at New Mexico State University, but will start her position as Title IX coordinator at Truman Sept. 24.
Janna Stoskopf, vice president for student affairs, said the University has been searching for a new Title IX coordinator since Jamie Ball’s departure in June. Stoskopf said Ball took a position at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Stoskopf has been serving as the interim coordinator since then.
Sally Herleth, executive director of human resources, ran the committee in charge of finding the new Title IX coordinator. The committee consisted of representatives from different groups on campus, including one student. Herleth said the hiring process consisted of an advertised search, to which 15 applicants responded.
“[Millot] has very strong credentials,” Herleth said. “She is doing very similar duties — practically the same job — so she was a very strong candidate with lots of good investigative experience with a strong background in that, so just very highly qualified.”
