Nearly half of Indiana University employees received an email today (Sept. 11) about their federal reporting obligations and training under Title IX or on their reporting and training obligations under both Title IX and the Clery Act. The training modules focus on student safety and each takes 30 minutes or less to complete.
All of us at Indiana University are shocked and distraught at the incident last weekend in Bloomington, where IU students were terrorized — two sexually assaulted at gunpoint — by two men who forced their way into their locked, off-campus apartment. While it is impossible to guarantee that this sort of act will never happen again, IUPD, working with our partners at BPD, is committed to doing whatever it can to make campus and the community as safe as possible.
Inside IU, the official newsletter for Indiana University faculty and staff, included an interesting article today about how employees should respond if approached by a student about an incident of sexual violence.
