As we  participate the national month for sexual assault awareness, in the spirit of offering a fair and equitable response, which is one of the roles of the Title IX Officer, we will have an open discussion about what happens when someone is accused of an act of sexual or other violence on campus. Sharing information regarding  institutional support, response, process, and  the rights of the respondent will be the main focus of this discussion.

In recognition of April being sexual assault awareness month (SAAM), several events have been planned and Campus and Community Partners have joined together in collaboration or as individual sponsor to raise awareness of acts of sexual violence and gender-based rights.
