Title IX Training for All Students and Faculty

Yesterday alarming statistics were revealed regarding a fourth of all college/university female students are subjected to sexual harassment and or rape while attending higher education institutions; in fact the highest risk is to freshman students during the “red zone” time period which is considered from the first day attending up to Thanksgiving break where most students have been accepted into a fraternity or club and the initiation phase is somewhat completed.

Obviously the reports stated that drug and alcohol use and abuse are contributing factors to these incidents and most go unreported because the victims feel no one will take them seriously. However, over the summer, new Federal requirements have been introduced that summon all schools to report potential Title IX violations and for the schools to provide updated training for all students in these area of great concern.
