Title IX and Sexual Misconduct Monthly Updates
May 2, 2022
Congratulations Class of 2022 – you have overcome so much adversity and we wish you the very best as you take on your world beyond the Hilltop! I want to offer special gratitude to graduating student leaders Anna Martinez, Student Title IX Advisory Board Chair, Haley Muse, Title IX Communication Intern, and Destiny Nicoll, It’s On Us President, for their outstanding leadership and hard work to bring forward difficult discussions, awareness and prevention programming and consistent communication about sex and gender misconduct. The students who volunteer their time and passion to these groups, as well as staff, faculty and students who serve on the SEU Title IX Committee, also deserve our thanks!
Next year’s leaders are:
Chair, Student Title IX Advisory Board: Desi Tsacalis, sophomore majoring in political science
President, It’s On Us: Adoree Benke, senior majoring in international business
Title IX Communication Intern (Fall): Still accepting applications through Handshake Job #6093059
While the work is never done when it comes to sex and gender harassment and violence, important initiatives were accomplished this year, through campus partners and student leaders, including but not limited to:
Launching the Redefining Men program, bringing back Take Back the Night march in full force, continuing semesterly Safety Walks with SGA, UPD and Facilities staff, providing prevention and educational programming in each residential community;
Distributing our first Sexual Assault Climate Survey for students, faculty and staff, improving monthly newsletters (no more 3 page letters from me);
Creating short student videos for the Title IX webpage to help students navigate the process of making a report and accessing online resources.
Things we are already working on for summer and fall include a Staff Summit June 10, 1-5 pm, Fall Faculty Summit, date TBD, developing a process for the analysis of data from the Sexual Assault Climate Survey, and monitoring the Department of Education for anticipated revised regulations for Title IX.
Sharing a special message and opportunity from It’s On Us new chapter president, Adoree Benke:
It's On Us is a national organization with chartered locations on college campuses around the nation with one located here at St. Edward’s. Our team is made up of passionate St. Edward’s students who are working to raise awareness of sexual violence on college campuses, teach students how to be appropriate but safe bystanders, and more. We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2022 through May 6th at 11:59 pm. You can access the application form here or under the "Forms" sections of our It's On Us page on Collegiate Link.
The next monthly update will come in August when we start the Fall semester (archived communication found here)! You can make a complaint or express concern about a student or employee and it can be anonymous if needed. You can also see SEU’s Annual Security Report with crime statistics and Daily Crime and Fire Logs.
