Kristine Barnett, EdD
Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Dean, Liberal Studies and Title IX Coordinator
The Bay Path University community welcomes and affirms the rights of its students, faculty and staff to live, work and study in an environment free of discrimination, harassment and sexual misconduct. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 ("Title IX") prohibits discrimination based on sex in the education programs and activities of an institution which receives federal financial assistance. As a recipient of federal financial assistance, Bay Path University is required to adhere to Title IX requirements.
Title IX protects faculty, staff
Bay Path University’s Title IX Coordinator, Dr. Kristine Barnett, serves in a neutral role and is available to all students, faculty, staff, guests, and visitors to provide resources and answer questions regarding the process to report a possible violation of the institution’s policy. Any incident involving sexual misconduct, harassment or discrimination may be reported to the Title IX Coordinator. In her role as the Coordinator, Dr. Barnett accepts the responsibility of upholding Bay Path’s Title IX policy and is a confidential resource to those who may wish to discuss an incident but may not be ready to file a formal report.
