With University of Wyoming Director of Employment Practices Oneida Blagg accepting a position at Pierce College District in Washington state, UW Interim General Counsel Tara Evans has appointed Manager of Investigations Jim Osborn as interim Title IX coordinator.
Evans also has appointed Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity Specialist Janean Forsyth Lefevre as UW’s interim Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) coordinator.
“Oneida has served the university well for many years, and we wish her the very best in her new position,” Evans says. “I have great confidence that Jim and Janean will provide strong leadership as interim Title IX and ADA coordinators.”
Blagg, who joined the university in 2012 as director of diversity and employment practices, has accepted an inaugural position as the executive officer of equity, diversity and inclusion at Pierce College District in Lakewood, Wash.
Osborn has been with UW since 1999, when he began working as a computer support specialist. He moved to Diversity and Employment Practices in 2008, and became the manager of investigations when the department reorganized in 2015. He will continue to oversee investigations of civil rights discrimination, sexual misconduct and workplace violence.
Forsyth Lefevre has been with the university since 2005, working in payroll and as a Human Resources partner for diversity and training in HR before transferring to the Employment Practices Office in 2015. Previously, Forsyth Lefevre served on Staff Senate and the UW Veterans Task force, and she currently is a member of the UW Accessibility Committee. In addition to her duties as interim ADA coordinator, Forsyth Lefevre will be the point of contact for administrative and academic searches.
Evans says she intends for Osborn and Forsyth Lefevre to serve in their interim positions until the upcoming search for a chief diversity officer is complete, at which time a determination will be made regarding Title IX and ADA coordinator responsibilities.
