Balanoff to lead equity and diversity at Seminole State

Janet Park Balanoff

After a national search, Janet Park Balanoff has been named associate vice president of equity and diversity/Title IX coordinator at Seminole State College of Florida.

Balanoff, who reports directly to President E. Ann McGee, will monitor College compliance with federal and state equal opportunity and nondiscrimination regulations. She will develop plans to increase the visibility of the College’s dedication and commitment to diversity and equity. Balanoff will serve as the Title IX coordinator and College compliance coordinator for the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Balanoff was the longtime director of equal opportunity and affirmative action at University of Central Florida, serving there for more than 30 years.

Balanoff holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Florida and a Master of Science in Public Administration from Florida State University. Early in her career, Balanoff helped develop desegregation plans for the University of Florida and Florida State University before moving to the Florida Board of Regents in a monitoring role for those plans.

"I’m looking forward to meeting faculty, staff and students as I get to know Seminole State," Balanoff said. "I will be working with various affinity groups on campus as well as specific community organizations to help increase the visibility of the College’s commitment to equity and diversity."
