The session will include information from several participating departments, including Human Resources; the Office of Faculty Labor Relations and Academic Inclusion; the Title IX Office; and the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards.

UToledo had been anticipating the new regulations, which were recently released by the U.S. Department of Education and go into effect Aug. 14. Teams are reviewing policies and procedures in preparation for their potential impact on campus.

Visitors to the interactive session will have opportunities to ask questions and offer input and feedback on the new regulations.

“Now that the new regulations are here, the real work begins in understanding, explaining and implementing them,” said Vicky Kulicke, UToledo’s director for Title IX and compliance. “Every person learning, living, working and receiving healthcare on our campuses has the right to a safe and secure environment. This session is part of our ongoing prevention and programming to ensure that right.”

Title IX actions are based in respect, sensitivity and dignity for all of UToledo students, faculty and staff members. Members of the University community with specific, individual concerns or reporting are encouraged to contact the UToledo Title IX Office at 419.530.4191, titleix@utoledo.edu or utoledo.edu/title-ix.
