A STATEMENT ON THE NEW TITLE IX REGULATIONS:


Greetings Rocket Community,

The federal government earlier this week released new regulations regarding Title IX, the law that prohibits sex-based discrimination and harassment at schools, colleges and universities. The University of Toledo has been anticipating these new guidelines for a long time and we have been reviewing our policies and procedures in preparation for their potential impact on our campus.

Now that the new regulations are here, the real work begins: understanding them, explaining them and implementing them. In the coming weeks we will create opportunities for you to make your voice heard throughout the review process.

The new regulations go into effect on August 14, 2020. Between now and then, our Title IX team here on campus will make sure that our policies and procedures align with the new federal regulations, as well as with Ohio state laws, court decisions and our UToledo values and mission.

In the midst of changing laws and regulations, UToledo is committed to creating a safe environment for everyone. Every person learning, living, working and receiving healthcare on  our campuses has the right to a safe and secure environment, free of harassment. The University has zero tolerance for sexual misconduct against members of the University community. We are committed to continued prevention and education programing.

Title IX actions are based in respect, sensitivity and dignity for all of our students, faculty and staff members. Please contact the University’s Title IX Office at 419.530.4191, titleix@utoledo.edu or utoledo.edu/title-ix with any questions, ideas or concerns.

Sincerely,

Phillip "Flapp" Cockrell, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs
and Vice Provost

Vicky Kulicke, CAAP
Director, Title IX and Compliance


UToledo is committed to ending sexual misconduct. We can’t do it alone. We all need to help.
We can do it. But we have to work together.


WHAT IS TITLE IX

The University of Toledo is committed to educational and working environments that are free from sex discrimination, including sexual harassment, sexual assault, or retaliation. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) is a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination. The University’s policies are consistent with the requirements of Title IX, Title VII, as well as relevant state laws.

The University encourages the reporting of sexual misconduct (including sex discrimination, sexual harassment and sexual assault) or retaliation that may occur in its programs or activities, to ensure that the University has an opportunity to address prohibited conduct. Reports may be made by completing a complaint form or by contacting one of the Title IX deputies listed below.

If you are a student, faculty or staff member who believes you have been subjected to sexual misconduct which includes sex discrimination, sexual harassment, sexual violence, sexual assault, conduct that exploits another person in a sexual and non-consensual way (such as voyeurism and non-consensual recording), stalking, dating violence, domestic violence, and indecent exposure or retaliation, please submit complaints in writing to a Deputy Title IX Coordinator.
