FA18 - Title IX Awareness & Harassment Prevention Training is NOW AVAILABLE!
Murray State University is committed to creating a safe environment for our faculty, staff, and students. In an effort to provide a safe and supportive environment for all people, it is necessary to annually raise awareness on ways to be safe and comply with federal law. (Title IX, Campus SaVE, VAWA, and General Non-Discrimination)
Murray State expressly condemns acts of sexual violence and misconduct, relationship violence, and stalking against its students, faculty, and staff. These condemned acts include sexual assault including rape, fondling, incest, and statutory rape; domestic violence; dating violence; stalking; and sexually exploitative behavior.
Our responsibility is to proactively seek ways to educate and inform our campus population about the dangers of sexual harassment and sex discrimination as well as to inform the campus about how unlawful discrimination impacts the campus environment. To this end we have partnered with United Educators to provide an annual free mandatory online training for all faculty, staff and students which is available to all campus users through Canvas.
All faculty, staff and students are required to complete the Title IX and Harassment Prevention online module annually in the fall.
