Willbanks named Title IX coordinator

  Michelle Willbanks  

As part of UTA’s ongoing commitment to campus safety and to further strengthen its Community That Cares initiatives, UTA has hired a new, full-time Title IX coordinator, Michelle Willbanks.

Willbanks is a licensed attorney who demonstrates a lifelong commitment to preventing sexual violence and supporting those who experience it. Her background includes work on the local and national levels focusing on prevention education and programming to advocate for an end to gender violence. She is attuned to issues of diversity and inclusion and well-positioned to steer UTA’s Title IX compliance efforts, while remaining sensitive to all members of our campus community, especially during this time of legislative uncertainty. In this new role, Willbanks will work closely with several deputy Title IX coordinators across campus, along with UTA Police, Human Resources, and Student Affairs, to lead UTA’s efforts to continue to improve the campus climate; ensure we have effective resources in place for students, faculty, and staff who are affected by sexual harassment, discrimination, or violence; and implement policies and practices that are prompt, equitable, and in compliance with Title IX. She will report to Shelby Boseman, University attorney.

Information on how to contact Willbanks or about UTA’s Title IX program, policies, resources, education, and how to file a complaint can be found on UTA’s Title IX webpage.
