Title IX Workshops
Kent State University is committed to providing a non-discriminatory university community. In support of this commitment, the Office of Gender Equity and Title IX have assembled a variety of learning experiences to educate faculty, staff and students about response, prevention, recovery, and resource components associated with gender/sexual discrimination and harassment.
Training Session topics will consist of the following information:
- The university’s policy definitions of gender/sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, stalking and intimate partner violence;
- Strategies Kent State uses to prevent these incidents;
- Bystander intervention strategies to use when you witness behaviors on campus;
- Ways you can support individuals who experience sexual harassment and sexual violence;
- Support resources that faculty, staff and students can use on campus and in the community;
- Kent State University’s policies and procedures for responding to and investigating reports
