We are pleased to announce Sarah Harebo as our Director of Title IX and Equity Services. Sarah will oversee Grand River Solutions’ Title IX Coordinator and Equity Director services which provides direct staffing support to schools looking to enhance their Title IX and equity teams or to assist during times of transitions in staffing.
“Grand River Solutions has grown so much in just a few short years, and adding director-level support is key to the next phase of our growth,” said Managing Director Jody Shipper. “We look forward to having Sarah with us as her deep experience, business know-how, and can-do attitude will be an important part of that growth.”
Sarah comes to Grand River Solutions from the University of Wisconsin System where she served as the Title IX and Clery Administrator for the 26-institution system. In this role, Sarah oversaw and coordinated the system’s compliance with Title IX and the Clery Act. Sarah previously served as the Director of Equal Opportunity for the University of Maine System where she was responsible for the administration and oversight of equal employment opportunity programs, Title IX, and ADA/504 compliance.
