Sexual Misconduct Research

How does Title IX effect you as a university student – specifically related to sexual misconduct

1) Title IX is best known for requiring gender equality in college athletics. However, Title IX is broadly prohibiting discrimination on basis of sex in any education program or activities. Under the same title IX law sexual violence also referred to as misconduct is any hostile environments / sexual harassment. This is a serious law put in place to protect all students at the university. Knowing that no matter the situation your university has a policy, a plan and law behind it to support you, care for you and protect you. This is really important for students to know and understand their schools policies, not only if something were to happen to them but if they were to see or even something that potentially could help someone else.
