Texas State University announced the appointment of Bobby Mason to the newly created position of assistant vice president for institutional compliance and chief compliance officer following a national search.

Mason was previously the chief compliance officer and institutional equity officer, Title IX coordinator, and equal opportunity officer at the University of Oklahoma. He joined Texas State on May 4.

In February, Texas State welcomed its first Clery Act compliance specialist, Kristina Morales. The moves come after the U.S. Department of Education’s Clery Compliance Division opened an off-site program review in November 2019 to evaluate the university’s compliance with the Act. The review is ongoing.
