Update to the Office of Equal Opportunity & Title IX
Dear DU Community Members,
I write to share the news that Jeremy Enlow, our interim executive director of equal opportunity and Title IX coordinator is stepping down, effective July 24. He has held this role in an interim capacity since May 1, and we are grateful for his service. Jeremy made the difficult decision to move back to North Carolina to be closer to family and friends and has accepted a position at the University of North Carolina’s Title IX office. We wish him the best in this new position.
Until we complete the national search for a permanent executive director and Title IX Coordinator later this summer, Erika Hollis will hold the interim role. Erika comes to us from Regis University where she most recently served for seven years as the vice president and general counsel. Erika’s experience with EO, Title IX and employment law is deep and varied. She has overseen and worked on Title IX and ADA matters for the past decade for both Regis University and Naropa University, including testifying before a Colorado State Senate Committee on Senate Bill 19-007. She has worked on domestic violence and equity and inclusion issues for over two decades—including serving as a domestic violence victim advocate and founding The Journal of Gender Race & Justice at the University of Iowa. She begins on July 20.
Jeremy joined DU in February 2019 as our Title IX coordinator and was a natural pick to serve as interim executive director of the Office of Equal Opportunity when the position was vacated this past spring. He has also continued to serve as Title IX coordinator. At the same time, Molly Hooker was named in a new role as deputy Title IX coordinator. Jeremy served the Office of Equal Opportunity ably during a uniquely challenging time, helping this institution navigate the recent updates to Title IX regulations.
As interim director and as coordinator, Jeremy created internal standardized operating procedures to streamline the Office of Equal Opportunity and Title IX. He represented DU proudly while serving on the state-wide Colorado Sexual Misconduct Advisory Committee and worked to improve the EOIX training program and establish strong campus partnerships.
We wish Jeremy well in this next chapter of his career. Please join me in thanking him for his work on behalf of DU. And please help us welcome Erika when she arrives next week.
