November 2, 2021

To ensure all employees are aware of and understand their responsibility to report any student disclosure of sexual misconduct to the University Title IX coordinator, Florida Poly is providing annual mandatory training on Title IX and how to report disclosures. The training has been updated based on the new Title IX Final Rule from the Department of Education, as well as our updated Florida Poly policy 1.005P Sexual Misconduct. This training fulfills the Federal Requirement for Sexual Harassment, Assault and Violence Prevention training.

The training includes information about:

  • The impact of Title IX and the Educational Amendments of 1972 on colleges and universities, their employees, and their students.
  • Becoming familiar with the responsibilities of campus employees under Title IX.
  • Developing a shared language around terms related to domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and consent.
  • Becoming familiar with Florida Poly’s statement prohibiting domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and consent.

In the next few days, all employees will receive an email from our training partner, Get Inclusive. The email will include a link to the online training module, which is self-paced and will take about 20 minutes to complete. Each link is specifically sent to each individual, so employees should not share emails. All responses to the quizzes and questionnaires in the course are confidential. The training must be completed by the end of the year.

For technical support, contact Get Inclusive.
