As of July 1, 2018, East Georgia State College has named Kelly Ansley as its Title IX coordinator. Ansley also serves as library director at EGSC.
Title IX is a broad federal law prohibiting gender-based discrimination in educational institutions receiving federal funds. It prohibits gender-based discrimination in all college programs and activities, including admissions, athletics, employment, housing, financial aid, recruitment, clubs and organizations. Title IX protection from discrimination extends to faculty, staff and students. It includes things such as sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, gender-identity and pregnancy. It also prohibits retaliation against anyone who makes or participates in a complaint.

“The safety of students, faculty and staff is a top priority at East Georgia State College, and we are committed to providing a learning, working and living environment that promotes personal integrity, civility and mutual respect,” said EGSC President Dr. Bob Boehmer. “All members of the EGSC community have an obligation to stay informed about Title IX in order to recognize and take steps to prevent discrimination, harassment, and sexual misconduct, and to respond effectively if such behavior does occur. All Title IX complaints, as well as complaints under the Non-Discrimination and Harassment Policy, are handled by the Title IX coordinator.”
If you have any Title IX concerns or discrimination and/or harassment concerns, Ansley is available to assist. She can be contacted by phone at 478-289-2015 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
