What is Title IX?
Transcript of What is Title IX?
Title IX is a landmark federal civil right that prohibits sex discrimination in education.
A Closer Perspective...
A prohibition against sex-based discrimination in education.
Addresses sexual misconduct - sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and sexual violence.
Sexual violence includes attempted or completed rape or sexual assault, as well as sexual harassment, stalking, voyeurism, exhibitionism, verbal or physical sexuality-based threats or abuse, and intimate partner violence
The best tips for Title IX...
Keep your eyes and ears open.
Develop relationships with your residents.
Report any information that is reported to you; whether you believe it is true or not.
Sexual Harassment Examples...
A professor insists that a student have sex with him/her in exchange for a good grade. This is harassment regardless of whether or not the student accedes to the request.
A student repeatedly sends sexually oriented jokes around on an email list s/he created, even when asked to stop, causing one recipient to avoid the sender on campus and in the residence hall in which they both live.
Explicit sexual pictures are displayed in a professor's office, on the exterior of a residence hall door or on a computer monitor in a public space.
Two supervisors frequently 'rate' several employees' bodies and sex appeal, commenting suggestively about their clothing and appearance.
A professor engages students in discussions in class about their past sexual experiences, yet the conversation is not in any way germane to the subject matter of the class.
An ex-girlfriend widely spreads false stories about her sex life with her former boyfriend to the clear discomfort of the boyfriend, turning him into a social pariah on campus.
Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.
Any type of forced or coerced sexual contact or behavior that happens without consent. Sexual assault includes rape and attempted rape, molestation, and threats.
Domestic Violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another.

The main responsibility of mandatory reporters is to report any Title IX violations to the University as soon as possible. You are required to report incidents you personally observe as well as incidents reported to you. You must report these offenses to the designated office on campus.
