This training program, offered by the Office of General Counsel, Human Resources, and the Center for Counseling and Consultation, will provide a comprehensive overview of Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972. Title IX is a federal law focused on eliminating discrimination on the basis of gender for all educational programs receiving federal funds. This training program will define discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual violence. You will learn appropriate ways to respond in the event that a student approaches you with a claim that he or she has experienced or witnessed such treatment. The Title IX training program will educate participants about the possible effects discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual violence have on victim(s) and on all members of the University community. The training program thoroughly explains St. John’s policies and procedures for addressing complaints, as well as your responsibility as a University employee to report complaints (to whom and how you should report).
