Rebecca Mosely Appointed Interim Title IX Coordinator
Rebecca Mosely has been appointed interim Title IX Coordinator and interim director of the Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. The appointment became effective July 1.
Mosely has spent 11 years working in the Office of Residential Education, having served as associate director and director of housing before transitioning to this role. She is responsible for training and education, communication, and implementation concerning equity policy and concerns on campus. Her position includes administration of the Sexual Misconduct Policy and the Policy on Discrimination and Harassment, as well as the prevention and education work that helps to ensure a educational and work environment free of all forms of discrimination and harassment.
“Many people know Becky from her long and effective service in Residential Education. She has been very active with Title IX issues and has handled a considerable amount of student conduct cases,” says Meredith Raimondo, interim vice president and dean of students and special assistant to the president for equity, diversity, and inclusion. “I’m delighted she has agreed to serve in this role.”
Mosely has a bachelor’s degree in French education from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree in student affairs and higher education from The Ohio State University, and is currently completing her Ph.D. in higher education at Bowling Green State University. In her doctoral work, she has focused on college access issues and social justice in education.
“I have spent most of my career in higher education, and here at Oberlin I’ve worked directly with students in housing, trying to help create safe and inclusive environments so they can thrive while on campus,” says Mosely. “I see this new role as an extension of my past work that enables me to continue to support the needs of our community. I am excited for the challenge that this new role presents me.”
