Don’t forget mandatory employee Title IX training

This notice appeared in the Weekly Phoenix between December 1, 2020 and December 7, 2020.

December 1, 2020

This is a reminder to finish the annual mandatory Title IX training, which ensures all employees are aware of and understand their responsibility to report any student disclosure of sexual misconduct to the University Title IX coordinator.

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.

Recently, all employees received an email from our training partner Get Inclusive. The email included a link to the online training module Meridians, 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.

Training completion was due by the end of November 2020. If you haven’t done the training, please do so.
