Our Statement: Going into Effect, Title IX Regulations from the Dept. of Education

On May 6, 2020 the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights released new updates to Title IX law.

These updates go into effect August 14, 2020 and require the U of U to make changes to its policies and procedures.

In a couple of weeks, U of U leadership will be communicating about the specific changes for our University policy and processes. As these changes are communicated and implemented, we commit to learning the ins and outs of the changes so we can assist survivors who choose to engage in the Title IX process.

In the meantime, we at the Center for Student Wellness want to reaffirm that we will:

  • Continue to provide confidential support, information, empowerment and resources to anyone in our campus community who has experienced interpersonal violence including sexual assault, domestic and dating violence, stalking, sexual harassment and family violence
  • Continue to provide comprehensive educational programming that includes bystander intervention, sexual health, healthy relationships, safer party culture, rape culture and responding compassionately to disclosures of interpersonal violence
  • Continue to listen to the U of U community about what resources and supports are needed
  • Continue to offer U of U students opportunities for meaningful involvement in prevention and advocacy efforts

As the changes are communicated by U of U leadership (and in the meantime) please know that we are here for you.
