STATESBORO — Georgia Southern University has selected Amber Johns Culpepper, J.D., as the new director of Equal Opportunity & Title IX and Title IX Coordinator.

Culpepper graduated from GS in 2006 and from The George Washington University Law School in 2009. She completed a summer internship with the GS Office of Legal Affairs while she was in law school.

After graduating law school, “Culpepper served as a Disability Adjudicator and Hearing Officer for the State of Georgia Disability Adjudication Services in Savannah,” according to an email from GS.

In February 2015, Culpepper returned to the GS Office of Legal Affairs, and in March 2019, she became the interim director of Equal Opportunity & Title IX and Title IX coordinator.

The Office of Equal Opportunity & Title IX ensures that all GS campuses comply with policies regarding discrimination and with Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action laws. The office also administers the University’s Sexual Harassment and Sexual Misconduct policies on all GS campuses.
