Campus hires third investigator for Title IX Office

To: UC Santa Cruz Community

From: Campus Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor Marlene Tromp

I am pleased to announce that UC Santa Cruz has hired Rosa Garcia to serve as an investigator in our Title IX Office. The permanent funding for this third investigator position and a new deputy director position will grow our office to a staff of six.

Garcia has spent the last three years working at UC Santa Cruz as a service coordinator in our Disability Resource Center. She holds an M.S. in rehabilitation counseling from San Francisco State University; a certificate in paralegal studies; and a B.A. from UC Santa Cruz.

Garcia is a great addition to the office. She is dedicated to supporting our students, staff and faculty while ensuring a campus free of discrimination.

Our recruitment of a new Title IX Office director continues, with final candidates scheduled for campus visits in the coming weeks. My hope is that we make an offer in April. In the meantime, the office is under great leadership with Cherie Scricca, interim Title IX Officer.

Our goal is to build a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment for teaching, research, learning, and working.
