I’ve been in constant therapy, spent countless hours discussing how to manage my panic attacks every time I had to walk by you and pretend I was OK, all while trying to manage my classes, grades, extracurriculars and job applications.
Title Mine and WU Planned Parenthood Generation Action will host a “Comment-Writing Party” in response to the Department of Education’s recently proposed Title IX regulations in the Danforth University Center at 3:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7.
Wash. U. plans to reject the new changes to Title IX outright, which we commend, but it is important for students to share their disapproval, too.
The Title IX investigation process is slated to change in accordance with a proposal from U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Washington University plans to submit a comment to the Department of Education alongside the other institutions in the Association of American Universities detailing its objections to the proposal.
While the possibility that ResLife could hire an RA with Title IX complaints against them is appalling, this concern is neither hypothetical nor abstract.
Washington University administration and student group Title Mine held a focus group for the redesign of the Title IX website Oct. 18. This focus group is a part of a larger Title IX reform effort to create implementation groups, which are individualized committees working on different aspects of Title IX reform.
Washington University held a listening session to gather feedback on the recent updates to the Title IX policy Wednesday, Sept. 12. The updated policy was released on Sept. 4 in response to demands made by Title Mine, a student activism group focusing on Title IX reform, last semester.
Student group Title Mine addressed changes to Washington University’s Title IX system with a statement posted to Facebook Sept. 4.
The statement details the demands that have been met, demands that are in progress and those that have not been met. It also explains what Title Mine organizers are currently doing in response to the changes.
This week we got some good news. Bittersweet news to some, hopeful news to others, but altogether good news. To be more specific, we received Washington University’s response to handling sexual assault and misconduct most heavily publicized in late April.
On Tuesday, Washington University released the much-anticipated report responding to recommendations made by organizers of the Title Mine rally, a call to action demanding reform to the Title IX reporting process for sexual violence. While reading the University’s report, I felt that the school is moving in the right direction and working to equip the Title IX Office with the resources to improve the process for everyone involved.
