Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Monthly Updates
April 5, 2021
While every moment matters in the fight to end sex and gender discrimination, harassment and violence, the month of April is recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month and serves as an opportunity to learn what you can do to stop sexual violence on campus and in your communities. As a reminder, I share a monthly update about St. Edward’s sexual misconduct and Title IX policy, process and resources. Potential action items can be found in red! As always, please remember that whether you have a physical presence on our campus or not, our policy, process and resources still apply and are available. Thank you for making time to read this update and get involved where you feel comfortable!
