Our Title IX Instructor:  Richard Anthony Baker, MPA, JD, PhD

Despite Dr. Richard Anthony Baker being a native of Compton, California, he considers Texas to be his home. Soon after his arrival in 1994, Dr. Baker began college and eventually matriculated from the University of Texas at Austin with honors. After graduation, Dr. Baker attended Texas Tech University where he had the distinction of being the first African American to graduate from with a doctorate of jurisprudence and a Ph. D. (Higher Education). Dr. Baker currently serves as the Assistant Vice Chancellor and Vice President of the Office of Equal Opportunity Services (“EOS”) for the University of Houston System and University of Houston (“University”). As a clearinghouse for best practices in the area of diversity, affirmative action, and equal opportunity, EOS coordinates and enforces the federal and state equal opportunity regulations for the University. Specifically, Dr. Baker is responsible for managing the University’s affirmative action, anti-discrimination, and anti-harassment efforts, including providing administrative guidance, conducting formal investigations of complaints as well as providing prevention training for the entire University community.  Dr. Baker is President of AAAED for 2018 - 2020.

The Title IX course is a separate offering but occurs during the week of our EEO/AA training for the Certified Affirmative Action Professional credential.  You have to choose one (Title IX) or the other series/CAAP training, which begins on Monday and ends on Saturday if you want to take all three required courses for the CAAP.  You cannot take both the Title IX and the CAAP courses if you wish to receive the CAAP that week, as they run concurrently.
