Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Monthly Updates
May 1, 2023
The academic year is coming to a close and there has been significant work accomplished this year to continue to advance our efforts in stopping sex and gender discrimination, harassment and violence. We have presented climate survey data and facilitated dialogue with Student Government Association, Student Title IX Advisory Board, Staff Council, Faculty Senate and the Institutional Oversight of Student Experience and Mission Committee of the Board of Trustees. Additionally, Athletics and Club Sports partnered on training with the national It’s On Us representatives as well as our chapter and the student advisory board. Title IX interns improved the newsletter you are reading so that more of our community members are able to access the information easily! And finally, student organizations and university departments sponsored many engaging events to increase sexual violence awareness, prevention and bystander capacity in our community! Thank you for participating in these important events and also informing our future work!
Below is this month’s Title IX Community Update. Please remember I will share monthly updates with you (except for June and July), so watch for future emails (archived communication can be found here)! As a reminder, you can make a complaint or express concern about a student or employee and it can be anonymous if needed To go directly to the SEU Title IX page, click here. You can also see our published Annual Security Report with crime statistics and Daily Crime and Fire Logs.
