TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)- Jennifer Broomfield started as FSU's Title IX director today, becoming the first full time employee at the university to concentrate solely on Title IX efforts.

She will be responsible for the development, implementation and monitoring of policies, procedures, and practices, to ensure FSU is complying with federal and state laws.
