Annie E. Clark is a co-founder and former Executive Director of End Rape on Campus (EROC). She was lead complainant in the Title IX, Title II, and Clery complaints against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where she graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a B.A. in Political Science. She has a certificate in business from UNC’s Kenan Flagler Business School and is a former administrator at the University of Oregon. Annie is contributing writer to the Huffington Post, MSNBC, and The Chronicle Vitae. After directly working with New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, she helped write the Bi-Partisan Campus Safety and Accountability Act. In 2013, she was listed alongside then-President Barack Obama as one of the most influential forces in higher education, and she is featured in the campus sexual assault documentary The Hunting Ground. During her tenure at EROC, she assisted hundreds of survivors, filing over twenty successful federal complaints with the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights.

She has since worked with the State University of New York’s SUNY system to direct a Department of Health grant focused on ending violence and providing support for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
