Title IX Regulation Training

As required by the Final Title IX Rule (Section 106.45 (b)), all materials used to train University Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process must be made publicly available on the University's website. In compliance with this Rule, the University makes available here the materials used to train its Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers,
and all persons who facilitate informal resolution processes.

For the purposes of compliance with section 106.45 of the Title IX Final Rules, this page includes training materials that have been used to train Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution process in Title IX compliance and practices as of 11-21-2022.

The Institutional Equity Office conducts annual Investigator, Decision-maker, and Advisor training on a number of areas including, but not limited to, the definitions of sexual harassment, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking; the scope of the University’s education program or activity; how to conduct an investigation and grievance process, including hearings, appeals and Informal Resolution processes; how to serve impartially, including avoiding prejudgment of the facts at issue, conflicts of interest, and bias.  Decision-makers will also receive training on any technology to be used at a live hearing and on issues of relevance of questions and evidence, including when questions and evidence about the Complainant’s sexual predisposition or prior sexual behavior are not relevant.  Investigators will also receive training on issues of relevance to create an investigation report that fairly summarizes relevant evidence.

Trainings Offered by IEO

As part of our commitment to ending sexual misconduct and creating a safe and respectful environment, USI provides online and in-person training opportunities for all students and employees. Trainings are designed to teach the campus community how to identify potential acts of sexual misconduct, direct individuals to the correct place when they learn about or experience sexual or related misconduct, and inform the community about USI policies and procedures for reporting and resolving such issues.

The following trainings are available for USI community members.

Bystander Intervention Training
This course will give you tools to be an active bystander in any unsafe situation you may encounter. You will learn how to determine if someone needs help, how to safely intervene, and be able to identify resources for victims. It will take approximately 1 hour with presentation and discussion points. This course is offered in-person or in a virtual format and is recommended for groups consisting of under 30 individuals.

This training lasts about 1 hour with interactive examples and is suitable for a group of up to 30 individuals in an in-person format.

Privilege Walk
This workshop has been designed to provide participants with an opportunity to
understand the intricacies of privilege and to explore the ways that we enjoy privileges based
on being members of social identity groups in the United States. This activity is recommended for groups that have good rapport with one another or work closely together on a regular basis as personal information and feelings may come up. This workshop lasts approximately 1 hour and is suitable for any size group, but space must be reserved that accommodates the size of the group. 

Professionalism in the Workplace
While Institutional Equity oversees workplace situations that are unlawful, we can also provide training to sure workplaces aren't unhappy.
