Former Director, University Office of Student Conduct

Former Title IX Coordinator

Former State Prosecutor


Stephanie Rowland is a proud Marine Corps “brat” who grew up on military bases and in K-12 schools around the country.  She credits her nomadic childhood for her ability to work comfortably with a wide variety of people and to assess new situations quickly and effectively.

Stephanie began her legal career as a Pima County, Arizona prosecutor in the juvenile and criminal divisions where she handled over 160 in-court actions including evidentiary hearings, bench trials, and jury trials.

After moving to Virginia, Stephanie joined Longwood University where she held three roles:

  • Internal Policy Analyst (reviewing and updating the school’s student and faculty handbooks)
  • Director of the Office of Student Conduct and Integrity (training and advising the school’s Student Rights Advisors, Administrative Hearing Officers, and the University’s Conduct, Honor, and Disciplinary Boards)
  • Title IX Coordinator (recruiting and training the school’s Title IX investigators, and leading campus-wide education regarding sexual misconduct policies)

Within weeks of being at Longwood, a realization quickly unfolded for Stephanie: her passion for higher education and those it serves – and specifically her passion for securing fairness in Title IX and Conduct Code proceedings – is what she now calls her “life’s right work.”

Stephanie then continued her career at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga (UTC), where she served as Title IX Coordinator for seven years.

Stephanie prides herself on working with students, faculty, and staff, whether respondent or complainant, in a compassionate, empathetic, and nonjudgmental manner. Through literally thousands of interactions across her career, she has learned how to explain the complicated bureaucracy of Title IX and other conduct-related university procedures in an understandable way.

She has deep knowledge of Title IX and conduct code regulations, policies, and procedures and how these systems should work when applied properly and fairly. She also knows the constraints and challenges school administrators face that often hinder them from delivering on their responsibility to execute that fairness in every single matter.  Her overriding objective in every case she handles is to ensure that her clients’ rights are fully protected and that every client is treated with that rigorous fairness to which they’re entitled.

In her free time, Stephanie embraces her life-long passion for travel that began during childhood summers in Canada with her father and a study abroad summer in the United Kingdom while in college.  She has visited more than twenty countries and forty-seven U.S. states during her travels.
