IMPORTANT UPDATES from NSU’s Title IX Coordinator:

New Policy & Procedures: The Department of Education recently released new regulations regarding Title IX, and NSU’s Title IX/Sexual Misconduct Policy and associated procedures have been revised to ensure NSU’s compliance with this important law. A formal announcement to the NSU community is forthcoming, additional information about how the procedures are implemented will be made available, and NSU’s online prevention training is being revised and will be sent to NSU students and employees soon. While there are revisions to policy and procedures, the expectations of the NSU community remain the same – to refrain from engaging in sexual misconduct and to engage in appropriate bystander intervention. Employees are still required to report potential incidents of Sexual Misconduct to the Title IX Coordinator and students can still expect a high level of support from the Title IX staff. Despite shifts in regulatory requirements, our purpose remains the same: to lead the prevention and resolution of sexual misconduct through caring responses and the creation of community champions to eradicate sexual harassment and violence.

Responses to Sexual Misconduct during COVID-19: Whether at the Davie campus or participating virtually, Title IX support for students and employees continues. Our usual forms of communication are still open: the online reporting form remains the best way to report concerns, email is the quickest way to reach us, and we can also be reached by phone.  We will continue to communicate with students primarily by email, with options for virtual and telephone meetings. In addition, sexual assault awareness programming and other educational opportunities will be provided through virtual and other creative means until we can ensure the safety of in-person engagement.
