Register for mandatory Title IX and sexual misconduct training

Dear UNT faculty and staff,

UNT is a caring university where faculty and staff work together to eliminate sexual misconduct, to provide care and support to individuals who experience it, and to hold violators accountable while treating all parties in a fair and equitable manner. All forms of sexual misconduct — including sexual harassment, gender-based harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, dating violence, domestic violence, stalking, sexual coercion and sexual exploitation — are violations of University policy and the federal law Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.

As a faculty or staff member, you are required to immediately report suspected violations of sexual misconduct to the Office of Equal Opportunity. We all must do our part to maintain a supportive environment so that all individuals feel comfortable obtaining help and reporting incidents. UNT family members who experience sexual misconduct are urged to seek help as soon as possible and take advantage of UNT resources.

As required by UNT policy and Texas law, all employees must receive training on prohibitions against discrimination and sexual misconduct every two years. An online training module will be available soon. Meanwhile, the Office of Equal Opportunity has scheduled in-person training sessions for the following dates and times:

• 10-11 a.m. Thursday, July 25, Eagle Student Services Center, Room 255

To register for one of these training sessions:

1. Access the Learning Portal.

2. On the Learning Center page, click on the “Find Learning” tile.

3. Search for “TitleIX” with no spaces.

4. Click on the Enroll button for the session you would like to attend.

5. Bring your UNT ID to the training session to receive credit and to ensure that completion of your training requirement is recorded.

If you have questions or would like to request disability accommodations, email Rebbecca.Dobrin@unt.edu or call 940-565-2759.

By making yourself aware of UNT resources and policies, you contribute to the university’s ongoing efforts to prevent and raise awareness of sexual misconduct. Thank you for doing your part to uphold Title IX and eliminate sexual misconduct at UNT.



Sincerely,

Joanne Woodard

Vice President for Institutional Equity and Diversity
