Student Conduct and Title IX

Student Conduct Requirements

Per our funders, recipients of the OVW Campus Program grant must provide ongoing training for all people involved in the student conduct or resolution process to respond effectively to situations involving sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.  education programming for all incoming students about sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking that includes information, awareness, and resources including student code of conduct, as well as have a mechanism to account for all students' participation in this programming. Campuses must also provide ongoing prevention programming and bystander intervention programming.

Goals for Student Conduct

By the end of year 1 of the OVW grant, we will have identified the ways the campus community learns about DVSAS (dating/domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking)-related policies, and discrepancies and gaps in existing policies.  We will also have clearly documented all existing protocols regarding response to DVSAS incidents and referrals between campus and community partners. We will have a clear list of individuals who need training in Title IX and conduct processes.

By the end of year 2, we will have in place clear, concise policies and procedures for addressing situations of sexual assault, domestic/dating vilence, and stalking that are in line with best policy practices. We will have also developed and clarified a set of protocols for students and staff when responding to DVSAS, in regards to providing safety planning, health measures, and other remedial measures. We will have expanded regular training for all individuals and/or appeals boards involved with the campus resolution process to include specific best practice training for DVSAS situations.

By the end of year 3, we will have a plan in place for regular review and updating of policies and communication of policies with campus. We will have widely disseminated the protocols across the campus community through new and existing channels. We will evaluate our DVSAS trainings, and plans will be in place to make ongoing updates to the training curriculum.
