Welcome to the Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office
Indiana State University has long been pledged to the principles of nondiscrimination and is firmly and unequivocally committed to the creation of a culturally diverse community among and between its faculty, staff, and students. Diversity within the University community advances the academic purpose of the University. Our expectation is that the University will do more than merely comply with legal requirements.
The Equal Opportunity and Title IX Office is responsible for carrying out Indiana State University’s commitment to preventing discrimination on the basis of sex, race, age, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, disability or veteran status, against any of its employees, students or invited guests. This includes Title IX and Campus SaVE Act obligations related to sexual misconduct - including sexual violence and sexual harassment - intimate partner violence, and stalking.
NOW SEEKING NOMINATIONS FOR THE TITLE IX COMMITTEE!
Nominations for prospective Title IX Committee members should be submitted no later than Sunday, August 30, 2015. Appointments will be made during the week of August 31, 2015. Training will take place during the week of September 8, 2015. To nominate a faculty or staff member to serve on the Title IX Committee, please click HERE.
The Office of Equal Opportunity is seeking qualified candidates for appointment to the Title IX Committee. The Title IX Committee is comprised of twelve (12) representatives of ISU faculty and staff. Title IX Committee members – working in panels of three - are responsible for reviewing cases involving alleged violations of ISU’s Policy Prohibiting Sexual Misconduct, Intimate Partner Violence, and Stalking where a student is the respondent. Title IX Committee members must participate in an initial training session and additional training sessions throughout the academic year.
We are looking for a diverse group of ISU faculty and staff members who have exhibited fairness, integrity, and impartiality in their interactions with students and colleagues, who are committed to a thorough and unbiased review of information, who keep student well-being at the forefront, and who are willing and able to make difficult decisions. Title IX Committee members should expect to be called upon to serve approximately once every two weeks in addition to initial training obligations.
Title IX Committee members will generally serve three-year terms, though in the first year terms will be staggered for long-term consistency.
