United Student Government (USG) introduced Point Park’s new Director of Title IX, Vanessa Love, in the first legislative body meeting of the new year on Monday.

The new hire comes after the University’s former coordinator, Elizabeth Rosemeyer, announced that she would head up the Title IX office at Carnegie Mellon University in October.

Before starting at Point Park, Love worked for the Community College of Allegheny County as a Civil Rights investigator and has a background in law.

According to Love, Title IX covers “sexual misconduct and gender discrimination” at the University.

Love informed the legislative body that the University could expect changes in Title IX policy to be announced at the end of January, but that the office could not yet discuss specifics.

Following Love’s introduction, USG wrapped up the meeting promptly.

The body briefly touched on potential guests for future meetings including University President Paul Hennigan, while Dean of Students Keith Paylo recommended the body meet with Point Park Chief of Police Jeffrey Besong to discuss recent changes in desk attendant policy.

Additionally, Treasurer Kortney Lampel informed the body that budget proceedings advanced as expected over break.

A matter-of-fact meeting provided significant contrast to last semester when President Kearns faced censure proceedings in the first legislative body meeting of the school year.
