The university said White has appointed staff to coordinate complaints and training on Title IX and established a committee to oversee compliance. White said Robert Vaughn, assistant professor of criminal justice and assistant university counsel, will coordinate Title IX training; Lisa Todd, associate vice president of human resources, will be in charge of individual complaints; and Provost John Gredy will serve as liaison to a new oversight committee for compliance that includes members from student life, human resources, public safety and public relations. The committee is chaired by the university’s general counsel, the school said.
Cedarville also retained noted Philadelphia lawyer Gina Maisto Smith, “a national legal expert on Title IX and the institutional response to sexual misconduct, to guide the university team in its continuing assessment and implementation of effective policies and procedures,” the university said.
According to her online biography, Smith “is frequently called upon to advise colleges and universities about sexual misconduct policies, changes in the law, and investigations into allegations of sexual misconduct, including sexual violence.”
