Meets the Needs of the University Employee

We collaborated with leading campus stakeholders to create a training that is engaging and meaningful for campus professionals. It’s a great complement to U Got This! Your Guide to Speak Up, Step In, and Create a Better Campus for All.  With a strategic use of humor and colloquial language, the program frames the broader issue of what it means to be a responsible employee under Title IX regulations and explores the “why” behind Title IX policies and procedures. The training ultimately provides opportunities for users to explore best practices when it comes to identifying and responding to sexual misconduct in higher education.

Interactive and Engaging

Report = Support! is training that feels more like a conversation than the traditional dry, instructional online program. Users are guided through various policies, scenarios, and interactive exercises so they can be fully informed of their Title IX responsibilities. The training introduces a range of intervention strategies that an employee might use to safely intervene when witnessing or hearing about an incident of interpersonal violence, sexual misconduct, or sexual harassment. Report = Support! utilizes multiple interactive strategies to keep users engaged. This engagement makes content knowledge relevant, actionable, and unforgettable.

TITLE IX MANDATES:

The training integrates an institution’s specific Title IX policies, definitions, procedures, and resources including:

  • • The respective institution’s Title IX interpersonal violence and sexual harassment policies
