Andrea Goldblum

New Title IX coordinator appointed

Andrea Goldblum, a higher education professional with more than 25 years of experience and an extensive background in Title IX compliance, has been appointed Pacific's first full-time Title IX Coordinator. Goldblum started in the position, which was a key recommendation of the university-wide Title IX Task Force, on Aug. 16.   

In her new role, Goldblum will serve as a resource for faculty, staff and students and will work in conjunction with the deputy Title IX coordinators at each campus to promote a positive, safe environment regarding gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Reporting to President Pamela Eibeck, she will oversee efforts in the prevention of and response to sexual misconduct, which includes sexual assault, stalking, dating and domestic violence, sexual harassment, and gender discrimination.   

"I am excited to have someone of Andrea's experience and expertise join Pacific in this key position," said President Eibeck. "It's incumbent on all of us to create a university culture where we can live, work and learn free from sexual misconduct. I look forward to working with Andrea to build upon our current framework to ensure that Pacific is following, and even pioneering, best practices around sexual misconduct prevention."  

Most recently, she was the Civil Rights/Title IX coordinator at Kenyon College in Ohio, where she was responsible for identifying best practices, monitoring and coordinating compliance with Title IX, the Clery Act, Section 504/ADA and nondiscrimination policies. She also implemented policies, procedures and case management plans, supervised investigations, determined and provided accommodations, and provided education and training to the campus community.  

Goldblum has dealt with sexual violence at a national level, having served on the Prevention and Training Subcommittee of the Federal Violence Against Women Act Negotiated Rule-Making Committee. She has conducted numerous training programs and has spoken on topics including Title IX, the Clery Act and the Violence Against Women Act and Restorative Justice at national conferences. She holds a bachelor's degree in education from the University of Miami, a master's degree in higher education from the University of Michigan, and had previously been in the Master of Science in Law program from The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law.  

She takes over the position from Lynn King, assistant vice president for student life, who had served in that role in a part-time capacity. Golblum can be contacted at her office in Hand Hall 111 or at 209.946.7770 or 888.383.2765
