Title IX Resources
As an instructor, one of my responsibilities is to help create a safe learning environment on our campus. It is my goal that you feel able to share information related to your life experiences in classroom discussions, your written work, and our one-on-one meetings. I will seek to keep information you share private to the greatest extent possible. However, for the safety of other students, I am required to share information regarding sexual misconduct or information about a crime that may have occurred on our campus under the Title IX Educational Act of 1972, which prohibits violence, harassment, and discrimination based on sex and gender. This definition of gender-based violence includes sexual assault, rape, dating/domestic violence, stalking, sexual harassment, harassment based on sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, stalking, cyber-stalking, etc.
If you or someone you know experienced such a crime, you have options for support.
Options for reporting, support, and accommodations (no contact, change in housing, assistance with classes and professors).
