Title IX Basics has been revised to incorporate new content! This course is a comprehensive overview of policies that include Title IX, Texas Education Code 51.252 (also known as SB 212), and UT Austin's Prohibition of Sexual Assault, Interpersonal Violence, Stalking, Sexual Harassment, and Sex Discrimination (HOP 3-3031) policy. We will discuss how these policies intersect, mandatory reporting duties for employees, intervention and support strategies, and resources and support available for Title IX related incidents. We will utilize scenario-based learning to apply workshop content to real world situations. This workshop can be tailored to fit the needs of a variety of audiences including students, employees, and student employees upon request.
This is an interactive workshop focused solely on setting and communicating boundaries and expectations. We will also discuss how to notice other people's boundaries, barriers to communicating and how to respond to cues, feedback and conflicts. Available for students, faculty, and staff.
This is a new workshop created out of the need to provide support to employees who are supporting students who have experienced a Title IX matter and/or are involved in a Title IX obligation.

We will also discuss employees' legal obligations to provide support and accommodations to students as well as provide best practices on how to navigate disclosure conversations with empathy and understanding.
