Upon enrollment, all incoming first-year undergraduate, graduate, and transfer students are mandated to participate in the comprehensive Undergraduate Required Title IX Sexual Assault Prevention Education course. This innovative online program incorporates video-based modules designed to actively address and diminish issues related to campus sexual assault, dating/domestic violence, and stalking. By engaging students in this educational initiative, the course aims to equip them with not only a deep understanding of these critical topics but also with practical and actionable bystander intervention tools. The goal is to foster a campus culture where safety and well-being are prioritized, creating an environment conducive to healthy relationships and mutual respect.


Mandatory for those holding the roles of Title IX Coordinators, Investigators, and Decision-Makers, the annual Title IX Certificate is a vital component of ongoing professional development for faculty and staff. This online program employs video-based modules to ensure a comprehensive understanding of Title IX responsibilities. Failure to complete this essential training may lead to disciplinary consequences, such as written warnings or reprimands, and other administrative actions, which could involve the denial of requests for leave, travel, reimbursements, or employment-related privileges.

While this requirement specifically targets certain roles, we strongly encourage all faculty and staff members to actively engage in this training annually. By doing so, individuals contribute to a campus community that prioritizes a safe, inclusive, and respectful environment. This shared commitment to ongoing education not only reinforces compliance but also fosters a culture where everyone plays a role in upholding the principles of Title IX, contributing to a healthier and more equitable workplace.
