UC Riverside welcomed two new leaders to campus in the areas of compliance and Title IX.

Elizabeth Boyd was named associate vice chancellor and chief compliance officer, and Brooke Chang became the new director of the Office of Title IX.

Boyd had served as UCR’s associate vice chancellor and chief compliance officer on an interim basis since July, and officially began her tenure on Feb. 1. She replaced Bill Kidder, who left UCR last year after seven years of service.

“As associate vice chancellor and chief compliance officer, Elizabeth is charged with providing leadership, oversight, and coordination of campus compliance as well as bolstering the culture of compliance at UCR,” Chancellor Kim A. Wilcox said.

For more than a decade Boyd has worked in university compliance, including leadership positions at the UC Office of the President, UCSF, and the University of Arizona. Boyd received her Ph.D. in medical sociology from UCLA and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from UC Berkeley. She also earned a master’s degree in communication from Stanford.

“I am thrilled to be at UC Riverside to help the campus navigate the very complex regulatory and policy environment in which we work.  As a public university, we must meet an array of requirements and obligations – I see my role as a collaborator, guide, and adviser.  Ultimately, my fundamental goal is to provide comprehensive support and guidance to faculty, staff, and students – whatever the question or concern,” Boyd said.

Chang, the new director of the Office of Title IX, will be reporting to Boyd.

The Office of Title IX is in charge of developing campuswide programming and training regarding sexual violence and sexual harassment (SVSH). It ensures compliance with these policies campuswide for students, staff, and faculty members. Chang’s office will also lead any investigations or complaints regarding SVSH cases, gender discrimination, stalking, and gender identity issues, among others.

Before coming to UCR Chang served as director of diversity and equity, and Title IX coordinator with the Office of Diversity and Equity at Radford University in Virginia. She has more than 20 years of experience as an attorney, including serving as attorney-advisor to the U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration, and serving as associate counsel to East Tennessee State University.

Chang obtained her J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law, and a bachelors of arts in general science from Brandeis University in Massachusetts.

Chang started on Jan. 30; her office is located in the Surge building, office 349.

“The Title IX Office provides critical services and important leadership role on sexual violence, relationship violence, sexual harassment, and stalking for the UCR campus community,” Chang said. “I am excited about taking on these new challenges and the leadership role in the Title IX Office, including providing services, guidance, and training to all of our students, faculty, and staff.”
