Title IX Training:
Because Title IX is crucial to the health and wellness of the West Liberty University community overall, awareness and compliance training on Title IX law is required for ALL WLU students, faculty and staff at ALL campus locations.
This year in 2020, the training launched in Summer and was developed by WLU’s Title IX Office in consultation with EverFi. Students will receive the training in Fall of 2020, while faculty & staff will have received the module in Summer of 2020, with a refresher during Winter 2020-2021.
These trainings are offered via secure online EverFi modules. Please check your University email for invitations to the trainings. Your modules will open in a new browser.
You may also directly contact the WLU Title IX office to be advised on your specific requirements by emailing [email protected]
Coordinator, Investigator Trainings:
The Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights requires all institutions receiving federal funds to make publicly available all materials used to train Title IX Coordinators, investigators, and decision-makers. In meeting this requirement, West Liberty University has provided materials or links to materials starting from the implementation of the new Title IX regulations on August 14, 2020.
Title IX Law
Title IX is a comprehensive U.S. federal law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex in any federally funded education program or activity. The principal objective of Title IX is to avoid the use of federal money to support sex discrimination in education programs and to provide individual citizens effective protection against those practices. Title IX law prohibits sexual harassment as well as sexual violence such as rape, sexual assault, and sexual coercion; applies to all people regardless of gender; applies regardless of whether or not a criminal report is filed.
