Title IX Training

What is Title IX?
“No person in the United States

excluded from participation in,be
denied the benefits of,or be
subjected to discrimination under
any educational program or activity
receiving Federal financial
20 U.S.C.§1681
Why are we talking about sexual violence/misconduct?
1 in 4 to 1 in 5 college women are sexually assaulted during college years.
In 2013-2014 23% of Westminster college women reported a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault during their time at Westminster.*
1 in 3 college women experience some form of sexual violence.
Women ages 16 to 24 experience rape at rates four times higher than the assault rate of all women, making the college (and high school) years the most vulnerable for women.

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972:
Federal civil rights law.
Prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex against any person in education programs and activities receiving federal funding.
Includes students, staff, faculty, and other employees
Includes women, girls, men, and boys; straight, LGBT, and gender-nonconforming persons; persons with and without disabilities; and international and undocumented persons
Right to pursue education, including athletic programs, scholarships, and other activities, free from sex discrimination, including
sexual violence and harassment.

Most often happens in freshman or sophomore year. Often within the first eight to ten weeks of freshman year.
In the great majority of cases (75-80%), a person knows the attacker, whether as an acquaintance, classmate, friend or (ex)partner.
Many are survivors of what’s called “incapacitated assault”: they are sexually abused while drugged, drunk, passed out, or otherwise incapacitated.

In 2013-2014 9.8% of Westminster college men reported a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault during their time at Westminster. *
1 in 12 college-age men admit having fulfilled the prevailing definition of rape or attempted rape, yet virtually none of these men identify themselves as rapists (this is why talking about consent is so important).

LGBT community experiences sexual violence at high rates.
One study found that 13.2% of bisexual men and 11.6% of gay men were raped in adulthood, compared to 1.6% of heterosexual men. 
 According to the CDC, 46% of bisexual women have been raped.
 Another study found that more than 25% of transgender individuals had been sexually assaulted after the age of 13.
