Subject: Title IX Update

 

We hope your fall semester is off to a great start!

 

On Friday,  you all received the current Clery Report from Public Safety regarding crimes on campus.  As we have each year since 2015, our office follows up that report with an annual Sexual Violence Report.  This report reflects institutional data and initiatives during from the past academic year, as well as efforts underway for the current academic year.

 

Also, as we shared in community emails last academic year, the U.S. Department of Education announced proposed changes to the rules on campus-based sexual misconduct. This was followed by a public comment period, which may lead to changes in the proposals before they become law.  While we don’t know how long it will take for the regulatory changes to be finalized; we will continue to reach out to and update the Wesleyan community regarding our ongoing work toward the implementation of compliant, trauma-informed policy, practices, and procedures that are responsive and fair for all parties. 

 

Please feel free to contact either of us with questions or concerns.

 

Sincerely,

 

Alison Williams

Vice President for Equity and Inclusion/Title IX Officer
